Joy marked in the Wisconsin state as Governor Jim Doyle signed a law declaring it a crime to require an individual to be implanted with a microchip. The people of Wisconsin welcomed the RFID law. The new law is likely to put the VeriChip Corporation into trouble. The company prepares VeriChip human microchip implant. The bill to frame such kind of law was introduced by Representative Marlin D.Schneider and was passed unanimously by both houses of state legislature. The law imposes fine of up to $10,000 per day for a violator.
