A bill by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, which Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Friday, bars California employers and others from forcing people to have a radio frequency identification (RFID) devices implanted under their skin. The bill goes into effect Jan. 1. "It's the ultimate invasion of privacy," Simitian said. "They should find other ways to keep track of employees." Wisconsin and North Dakota have enacted similar laws.
