Like the calendar for the House Ways and Means Committee, Subcommittee on Social Security: http://waysandmeans.house.gov/Calendar/?EventTypeID=149&CatagoryID=4772
On Apr 13, 2011, the Subcommittee will examine the impacts of identity theft, the role of SSNs in abetting identity theft, and options to restrict its use. In addition, the role of the SSN in administering Social Security programs and how the Social Security Administration protects SSNs will be considered, along with legislative proposals to limit the use of SSNs.
Call your ... (ok, "representative") ... and tell him (or her) what limits you'd like to see.
The April 14 hearing will focus on the "progress" made and challenges created by E-Verify, including the potential burdens on employees, employers and the SSA. (How about burdens upon Liberty?) The Subcommittee will examine how the current shortcomings of the system could be improved to ease the verification process during this critical time of job creation. Finally, the Subcommittee will also review other proposals to expand employment eligibility verification, including enhancing the Social Security card with tamper-proof, counterfeit-resistant or biometric features and increasing enforcement through the sharing of taxpayer wage information.
