CFA and Other Groups Go Neutral on Amended CA Digital License Plate Bill

Consumer Federation of America and other groups dropped their opposition to AB 984, a California bill that would make a pilot program offering digital license plates for passenger vehicles permanent, after the legislation was amended to prohibit GPS tracking from being included in the plates. The change was made to resolve concerns that this location information might be unwanted or even dangerous; for instance, domestic violence perpetrators could use it to monitor where their victims go.
