H.R. 1457: MOBILE Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1457 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 1457 authorizes a financial institution, upon an individual’s request, to record personal information from a scan, copy, or image of such individual’s driver’s license or personal identification card and store the information electronically for the purpose of verifying the identity of a customer and preventing fraud or criminal activity, and requires the financial institutions to delete the image after using it for the permitted purpose.

Currently, a majority of states allow mobile banking apps to copy or scan state-issued driver’s licenses or personal identification cards to verify customers, allowing them to open a bank account or seek certain other banking services on a mobile device. However, a minority of states do not permit this practice or have potentially ambiguous related laws.
