U.S. Congressmen push a bipartisan digital ID package

Days after a U.S. Labor Department administrator told ID tech executives that Washington is losing billions of dollars to online crime, a pair of federal lawmakers introduced legislation to modernize the nation’s digital ID infrastructure.

The Improving Digital Identity Act of 2020 is being sponsored by four congressmen: Illinois Democrat Bill Foster, Rhode Island Democrat Jim Langevin, Georgia Republican Barry Loudermilk and New York Republican John Katko.

Last week, the administrator of Labor’s unemployment insurance office spoke to attendees during a federal ID online conference, saying fraudulent new jobless claims are rampant because digital IDs are unavailable.
