Warning of sinister privacy intrusions in an Orwellian world, Del. Mark Cole said the bill means no one could be required to wear a tracking implant as a condition of employment.
He said there were religious concerns, some of them rooted in Christian teachings of an Antichrist requiring followers to wear “the mark of the beast.”
But Cole said he was concerned that Virginians who object on secular grounds to tracking implants have a legal right to refuse.
Opponents called the bill “a solution in search of a problem” and said the only beneficiaries would be late-night television comedians who could lampoon Virginia for loopy lawmaking.
