Missouri Passes Privacy Bill
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.June 25, 2010
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has signed a bill aimed at protecting citizens' Social Security and taxpayer identification numbers, reports InfoZine. House Bill 2056 requires that child support and garnishment documents contain only the last four digits of such identifiers, whereas previously they may have contained the entire number. "The people of Missouri deserve a state government that operates with maximum efficiency and protects the vital interest that citizens have in the privacy of their personal information," Nixon said. The bill will take effect August 28.
