NOPE. VIOLATES The Virginia Data Collection and Dissemination Act, the Virginia Consumer codes, the Federal Privacy Act, E-Commerce Act, and is basically a legalization of biometric data THEFT by bar cards and other "fiduciaries". This bill is merely an attempt to Cover up the MASS LAND THEFT schemes occurring through the district court System by lawyers who purchased junk debt portfolios without Vetting the Source of Information obtained illegallay through subscriptions with MERS.
