Brown bill protects SS numbers
(2008-04-25)
(WOUB) - Identity theft runs up credit card bills and causes legal trouble for many Americans.

Ohio U-S Senator Sherrod Brown hopes to decrease the number of stolen identities... especially when it comes to senior citizens.

He's proposing legislation that would require the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to remove social security numbers from identification cards.

More than eight million people had their identities stolen last year.
