New Bill Would Give Police Instant Access to Drivers' License Photos

Wisconsin Attorney General Van Hollen is backing a bill that would offer electronic access by law enforcement agencies to photographs on motor vehicle operators licenses and identification cards.
According to Proof and Hearsay:

The bill Van Hollen backs, which as he says “isn’t costless,” would sync up the police computers that already use this system with the DOT’s and enable electronic signatures to be used to request pictures. The first-term AG says federal grant money is available to defray the costs, but he didn’t give an estimate on the total tab.
