Today brings a significant victory for all who opposed the Missouri Department of Revenue’s unethical, illegal scanning of personal documents. Governor Jay Nixon signed into law Senate Bill 252, which prohibits the DOR from keeping copies of personal documents (used when obtaining a driver’s license or concealed-carry permit) and requires that the DOR destroy already-obtained documents by the end of this calendar year. The grassroots got engaged in a big way on this issue. Their legislators, and now the Governor, have responded to their concerns!
Many thanks to our legislative allies and grassroots supporters for keeping the pressure on Governor Nixon and his administration. This is a certain victory for privacy rights in the state of Missouri!
