    HARRISBURG - Two bills that will help protect the privacy of individuals were signed into law last week. To help keep Social Security numbers private, House Bill 2134 calls for the state to accept alternative identification on government documents, including various recreational license applications. Instead of a Social Security number, a driver’s license number or a non-driver’s identification number, provided by PennDOT, would be permitted. Additionally, House Bill 2133 ensures that Pennsylvanians ages 10 and up are eligible for a non-driver ID card to ensure they have an alternative to using their Social Security numbers.
