The Libertarian Party of Maryland (LPMD) and the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland (ACLU) support HB 1101, which prohibits any state or local government, or agent thereof, from requiring, coercing, or compelling an individual to undergo the subcutaneous implanting of an identification device. HB 1101 helps ensure that the workplace provides protections to government employees against a certain type of potential employer invasion of privacy, that of a practice called “microchipping.”
