The Prohibition of Identification Devices Initiative (07-0056) was shooting for the November 2008 general election ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment to the California Constitution. Its supporters would have had to turn in 694,354 valid signatures in order to make the November ballot. However, the California Secretary of State announced on May 2, 2008 that the measure had failed to qualify.
The objective of the initiative was to forbid the State or any political subdivision from enacting a law that would mandate the implantation of any type of information, device containing information, or ink, under the skin of a human or animal, for any purpose.
- Provides that refusing to accept such a device may not be grounds for denial of employment, education, insurance, health care or licensing.
- Establishes that no public or private entity may enforce any law that is inconsistent with this measure
Estimated fiscal impact of the measure
Fiscal impact estimate as provided by California's Legislative Analyst office:
Potentially higher local government costs than would otherwise be incurred for animal shelter operations that would probably not be significant on a statewide basis.
