New chips called a danger to privacy

The full House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the measure, House Bill 203, in January.

State lawmakers and advocates say it represents the most complete effort so far among the states to address the use of radio frequency identification, or RFID, microchips. Foster's Online, Dover, New Hampshire
