signed by the Governor, Pennsylvania would be required to establish a
national I.D. card for each of its citizens. In acquiring their national
I.D. card, Pennsylvanians would have to provide sensitive, personal
information to the government, without guarantee that this information will
be safeguarded from identity thieves or otherwise be used in an
irresponsible, inappropriate, or invasive manner by state and federal
