drivers licensing and social security numbers
- The collection by the "States" of social security numbers
was mandated by Congress in Public Law 104-193.
I found the reference in Washington State Codes in RCW
25.23.140 in which it states:
"The federal personal responsiblity and work opportunity reconciliation
1996, P.L. 104-193, requires states to collect social security numbers
of the application process for professional licenses, driver's licenses,
licenses, and recreational licenses."
So I went looking at Public Law 104-10 and found 110 Stat, 2220 under
Sec. 317 "COLLECTION AND USE OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUBMERS FOR
USE IN CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT.
Section 446(a) (42 U.S. C. 666(a)), as amended by section 315
of this Act, is amended by inserting after paragraph (12) the following
"(13 RECORDING OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS IN CERTAIN FAMILY
requiring that the social security number of-
"(A) any applicant for a professional license, commercial driver's
occupation license, or marriage license be recorded on the application;
"(B) any individual who is subject to a divorce decree,
support order, or paternity determinatoin or acnowledgement be placed
in the records relating to the matter; and
"(C) and indivudual who has died be placed in the records relating
death and be recorded on the death certificate.
For purposes of subparagraph (A), if a State allows the use of a number
other than the social security number, the State shall so advise any
Note the list of kinds of licenses that require the recordation of
a Social Security number - "professional license, commercial driver's
license, occupation license, or marriage license"
HMMM - so if you have been denied the renewal of your drivers'
license - which one do you have???? MUST BE A COMMERCIAL DRIVER'S
This all in the guise of 'CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT'.
The Washington State Code references "recreational licenses", however
the Federal Law the State is basing the requirment says no such thing.
They reference "Commercial Driver's license" only.

Nobody has a right to drive a vehicle upon any state roadway - common law or
otherwise. However, one DOES have the right to travel in the automobile of
the day and go about his own private affairs. We are all joint tenants in
common use of the roadways. The state merely holds it in trust for our
If I don't have the right to tell you, a free, living, breathing American of
age and full-liability, to take a test and obtain a "license" to travel on
the roadway, then neither does a group of people doing business as THE
PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA have any such right.
"If one individual does not possess such a right over the conduct of
another, no number of individuals can possess such a right. All
combinations, therefore, to effect such an object are injurious, not only to
the individual particularly oppressed, but to the public at large."

It's very simple.
Liberty doesn't guarantee safety. Don't sacrifice one to ensure the other;
otherwise you will end up with neither.

was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to
the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and
its speaker, a raving lunatic." --Dresden James
