Re: California can now issue vital records using Verifiable credentials

Congratulations to the teams that made it happen!

Speaking of other jurisdictions: Indonesia passed the Data Protection act is now entering a two-year grace period before claiming 2% annual revenue in fines for those who do not comply…

Thank you to all the companies that contributed to support it happening.

Symsoft Solutions

Our lobbyist Jamie Minor of Niemela Pappas &. Associates
and Ally Medina who headed the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition for most of the time and believed in our vision to get some legislation specifically about verifiable credentials passed.

It goes to show that when a small group gets together and focuses along with the right knowledge to navigate the political system good things can happen.

I hope we can learn from this and work together in other jurisdictions.

HI Folks,
 I wanted to report good news from the Verifiable Credentials Policy Committee that I have chaired for the two years here in California (it sits under the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition).

 SB 786 was signed by the Governor yesterday so it is now law.
It amends the vital records act to say counties can issue vital records ad verifiable credentials.
 You can see the text here:

Hopefully other states will take note and follow suit.
