Testimony in Opposition to Proposed Rules Governing The City Identification Card Program
Comments of the New York Civil Liberties Union in opposition to Proposed Rules Governing The City Identification Card Program
October 7, 2014
The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) is pleased to provide public comments on the rules proposed to govern the New York City Identification Card program (NYC ID). While supportive of the concept of a local ID card that carries benefits for marginalized New York City residents, the NYCLU remains concerned about the absence of adequate privacy protections: first in the law itself, and now in the rules proposed to implement it.
