MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin public schools would be forbidden from sharing any biometric data collected from students that could identify them, like fingerprints and retina scans, under a bill that has cleared a state Assembly Committee.

The Republican-backed bill would allow schools to collect the personally identifiable information about students, if parents agreed. However, schools would be barred from sharing the information with state or federal officials.

Democrats who voted against it say they are concerned about unintended consequences.
