Columbus City Council members Stinziano and Brown have been participating in an investigation into the creation of a single Municipal ID for Columbus residents. The importance of this centers on the idea of making an accepted identification card available to residents that might not otherwise be able to obtain one, though that is just the start of the benefits the program might offer.

Two events on this subject have occurred recently. The first on February 15th and the second on March 7th. The first was a "speaking and listening" session held at the 1st Unitarian Universalist Church and the second was a follow-up hosted by Tifereth Israel Synagogue with speakers from New York, Detroit and Baltimore discussing their experiences implementing their city's programs. The links to these videos are:

Ongoing coverage of this will be provided as events unfold.
