Minnesota AG seeks end to bulk sales of drivers' license data

Minnesota is one of the states in the US that still sells drivers' license data in bulk. To about five thousand organizations a year. Attorney General Mike Hatch wants to end that practice to protect the privacy of the residents of the states. He doesn't want to close it down completely; he wants the DMV to sell them for $5.00 each but only if you provide a name and notify the individual. See: MPR: Hatch wants end to selling of driver's license info. (Via Privacy Digest.)
