Places prohibitions on the use of social security numbers by state and local governments, including collecting the number unless otherwise authorized by law, failing to segregate the numbers collected from other records or to provide a person with an explanation of why the number has been requested, printing the number on any card required for the individual to access government services or printing the number on materials mailed to the individual (unless required by state or federal law), or otherwise disclosing the number to a third party without the individual's consent. Lists exceptions to prohibitions. Authorizes local law enforcement agencies to take reports of identity theft even if another agency has jurisdiction over investigation of the crime.
