CALIFORNIA COULD BE FIRST TO GET ELECTRONIC LICENSE PLATES…BUT WOULD THEY BE LIKE A ‘MOVING WIRETAP’?

I think this bill would discriminate against illegal aliens who drive without insurance.  Would CA really want to do that??
California has jumped ahead of other states with passage of a bill that would allow for an electronic license plate program — at least as a pilot to start. But some worry about the privacy issues the system, which could change messages on a car’s plate, could have.

While still awaiting the signature of Gov. Jerry Brown (D), if it moves forward, the bill would allow for the pilot program to involve 0.5 percent of registered cars in the state and would be completed no later than the beginning of 2017.
I think this is a solution in search of a problem.
