ITAA consists of over 325 corporate members throughout the U.S., and a global network of 70 countries' IT associations. The Association plays the leading role in issues of IT industry concern including information security, taxes and finance policy, digital intellectual property protection, telecommunications competition, workforce and education, immigration, online privacy and consumer protection, government IT procurement, human resources and e-commerce policy.

Not USA, but on it's way...
Office puts chips under staff's skin BBC News 29 January 2015

Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a sandwich? We're all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach - a chip under the skin.

^^Not really sure if this will take off. Phones pretty much have it covered, plus all kinds of biometrics; fingerprint, face, eye, voice and gait. No need for a chip when the building recognizes you a mile off.

Fear PORN ... I'm so sick of it.... Of course, The Psychiatric Political State, e.g, pharmaceutical companies, and system that creates these fear based scacity models whether it's models on water scarcity, "food insecurity", control , control, control, also happen to be those who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” of ALL TYPES and are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and entrench the system deeper into our pockets. Yeah, often times the pockets were keep our homing devices in, i.e, our government trackers, otherwise known as cell phones w/the tactic of geolocating METADATING us and our wallets. fUCK... I'VE NEVER SEEN A species SO WILLING TO BUY THEIR OWN ENSLAVEMENT.

Yeah, on reflection, the tech has been around for a while now (or the threat of it) and not a lot has happened to implement it across the board. I guess the survey said 'on the whole, not acceptable', or alternatively, the proponants thought 'we got it covered in different ways now, anyhow'

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. It was overtaken by better stuff. Plus, there's the psychological factor of having something implanted under your skin. I think a lot of people are skeptical to the idea.
