Many states have enacted restrictive laws surrounding scanning ID’s that are often inconsistent across the country, and many have proposed, and continue to propose, legislation intended to change their existing laws or introduce new laws surrounding this issue. States often have different laws reflecting their view on personal ID protection, with some being very strict as to when you can scan, for what purpose you can scan, and what you are allowed to do with the data you receive from scanning an ID. Retention and later access of the data can also be a sensitive issue under these laws.
