Individual Rights and Freedoms in Jeopardy

"... giving up our precious liberties will not protect us more."
- Rep. Kohring

 

(JUNEAU) - Representative Vic Kohring (R-Wasilla/Mat-Su), has expressed concern about the passage of H.R. 418 in Congress on February 10th that would establish and implement federal regulations governing state driver's licenses around the country including Alaska.

Kohring's concern is that the legislation creates a de facto National I.D. Card, subjecting Alaskans to an egregious loss of their privacy. "It will give the federal government access to our bank accounts, medical records, tax information, real estate purchases-virtually our entire lives," said Kohring. "It will have a profound effect on Alaskans freedoms if signed into law," he added.

The intent of the legislation is in response to the threat of terrorism, however, Kohring does not believe restricting people's freedoms will stop a terrorist act. "Congress is overreacting and trying to give everyone a false sense of security," he said.

Kohring continued, "This may be a congressional issue, however, it effects all of us from the feds down to the local level. I feel I have a duty and responsibility to my constituents as a state legislator to stand up to such injustices. Unfortunately, giving up our precious liberties will not protect us more."
