: Got this from another site. Read through it and respond to your representative immediately. This is an attempt by Congress to REQUIRE the SSN on just about anything you apply for in your state. Driver's license, job license, marriage certificate, birth certificate (parent's numbers required), etc.

: <<<<<< MAJOR NEW SSN LEGISLATION IN CONGRESS >>>>>>
: Bill Imposes Mandatory SSN Requirements Upon the States Legislation is currently pending before Congress which will make it MANDATORY for states to collect social security numbers before they can grant any state-issued license or certificate. The bill under consideration, H.R. 3130, mandates that states "SHALL" require SSNs from ALL applicants for any professional license, driver's license, occupational
: license, or recreational license in addition to requiring SSNs on all birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, and death certificates. This is a major change from the present law which merely "coerces" states to collect SSNs under the child support enforcement program as a condition to their receiving federal welfare funding.The original bill passed the House in March of this year as the "Child Support Performance and Incentive Act of 1998". The House measure provided "bonuses" for states which achieve acceptable "performance scores" in tracking down deadbeat dads and collecting unpaid child support payments.
: The House-approved version did not contain any SSN reporting requirements. But when H.R. 3130 went to the Senate a "substitute" bill was quickly approved including the mandatory provisions. The Senate substitute, sponsored by Senator William Roth, was approved by unanimous consent on April 2, 1998.
: Section 403 of this bill will amend Title 42 U.S. Code section 405(c)(2)(c) by changing the word "MAY" to the word "SHALL." The U.S. Code presently only "permits" the states to obtain social security numbers for certain limited purposes. And, as presently worded, any request for a social security number by a state must be done in compliance with the Privacy Act requirements.
Looks like just another way of saying those licenses are not REQUIRED for those born to the land by divine appointment. We'll be doggoned if we'll ask any U.S. State for another one of their permissions to do something which we do as a matter of common right.
Furthermore, we will not worship their gods nor bow down before them. Heat up the furnace and starve the lions!
There is a little bit of a point here to think about. If anything requiresa signature, it is contractual, thus voluntary in nature. Anything that is done by operation of law is done with the law being in lieu of signature or seal.
The State will hold the position, regarding drivers' licenses, that you are trespassing on the State's roads. As the State is a public entity formed to serve the public, it cannot hold title. Ask your local Department of Motor Vehicles or Secretary of State to profert the State's tile to the road and/or the land the road is built on.
Our position is that the State is trustee of the common known as a road which belongs to you and is for your beneficial use nad enjoyment as a matter of right.
Fighting them or not is your choice, but if you choose to do it, have fun and remember, you can't lose if you don't have to win.
