REPORT: State tracking personal info through drivers licenses and concealed gun permits...

JEFFERSON CITY • A Missouri House committee is preparing to hold a hearing next week on claims that the state Department of Revenue and local license fee offices have been tracking personal information through drivers’ licenses and concealed carry permits.

Rep. Jay Barnes, a Republican from Jefferson City who chairs the House Government and Accountability Oversight Committee, has sent a letter to the Revenue Department, the state Office of Administration and other agencies, requesting copies of all rules and procedures related to the copying and transfer of personal information of Missouri residents applying for drivers’ licenses or concealed carry permits. According to the letter, Barnes’ committee is planning a hearing for Monday, and he wants the information before then.

The Revenue Department recently rolled out new drivers’ licenses with enhanced security features that are supposed to curb the risk of identity theft and fraud. Because of the new security features, the licenses are mailed to recipients.

A Stoddard County man filed a lawsuit this week claiming that the new state system for issuing those violates privacy rights
