This article was in the Annapolis paper (http://www.capitalgazette.com/news/environment/social-security-number-required-for-fishing-license/article_75aa1198-0792-5fa4-b482-a0795fc88157.html). I cannot believe this is acceptable given the proliferation of ID theft. I'm sure the DNR's network and data are secure. :rolleyes:

Social Security number required for fishing license

When you go to buy a new fishing, hunting or boating license, don’t be surprised when you’re asked to give your Social Security number.

Since 2003, state and federal laws have mandated that the state collect Social Security numbers when issuing recreational licenses.

But the law is just now being enforced as the state Department of Natural Resources rolls out a new computer licensing system called COMPASS.

Why the need for Social Security numbers? Blame deadbeat parents.

To buy a fishing or hunting license in California, the clerk will swipe your driver's license through a reader and all your info pops up on the screen....

Lindy,

Since i moved to the occupied Area of Maryland.. There has been a lot of things I just don't understand.

Let a SSN get out from them and watch the lawyers get it done..

I work at an establishment up on the North Shore that sells many recreational licenses and this is SOP here as well.

I work in security at the main gate and your required to show your drivers license in order to get in........:( We do the same procedure by swiping the license and we get quite a bit of info we don't really need.........:(

At least illegal aliens will not be fishing, legally... :rolleyes:

I'm not sure why not. Here in AZ, a significant number (most??) have such ID. Sheriff Joe has never caught a company that hired illegals who had not "passed" muster with "E-Verify"... with someone else's SSAN.

It has something to do with child support payments. If you are behind in those payments you cannot go hunting or fishing.

Commy Md. Getting worse every year! I guess moving to CA isn't an escape either.
The occupied part of Maryland? There's only two counties that aren't, I live in one of them. Did you?

My Social Security Card specifically states "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION"
Also the Internal Revenue Service uses your SSN as a Taxpayer Identification Number. Also the Dept. of Defense uses your SSN in lieu of issuing you a serial number. Did the U S GOV run out of numbers? TK
