Baton Rouge, LA asked in Uncategorized for Louisiana

Q: Some states have declined the use of facial recognition for licensing purposes at their motor vehicle departments. Why?

New Hampshire it is against the law to collect biometric data for licensing. Missouri has a similar law that expires this year. Louisiana and Oklahoma are not that clear. I'm looking for a reason why these two states have declined to use the technology when most of the states have received remarkable results in reducing fraud and achieved 1 license/1 person rule. Please let me know as I'm doing a term paper for college. Thank you
