[Omit the part struck through and insert the part printed in italic]


To establish a Government-wide approach to improving digital identity, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,


This Act may be cited as the “Improving Digital Identity Act of 2023”.


Congress finds the following:

(1) The lack of an easy, affordable, reliable, and secure way for organizations, businesses, and government agencies to identify whether an individual is who they claim to be online creates an attack vector that is widely exploited by adversaries in cyberspace and precludes many high-value transactions from being available online.

(2) Incidents of identity theft and identity fraud continue to rise in the United States, where more than 293,000,000 people were impacted by data breaches in 2021.

(3) Since 2017, losses resulting from identity fraud have increased by 333 percent, and, in 2020, those losses totaled $56,000,000,000.

(4) The Director of the Treasury Department Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the Department of the Treasury has stated that the abuse of personally identifiable information and other building blocks of identity is a key enabler behind much of the fraud and cybercrime affecting the United States today.

(5) The inadequacy of current digital identity solutions degrades security and privacy for all people in the United States, and next generation solutions are needed that improve security, privacy, equity, and accessibility.

(6) Government entities, as authoritative issuers of identity in the United States, are uniquely positioned to deliver critical components that address deficiencies in the digital identity infrastructure of the United States and augment private sector digital identity and authentication solutions.

Take the Pew Research Center Political Party Quiz

According to the Pew Research Center JONATHAN LULICH is a Hybrid Disaffected Democrat & Country First Conservative

Disaffected Democrats

This majority-minority group mostly identifies as Democratic or leans toward the Democratic Party. Disaffected Democrats strongly believe the economic system unfairly favors powerful interests and that business corporations make too much profit. Relatively few believe their family has achieved the American Dream, and 24% believe it is out of reach for their family. Most say the government should do more to help the needy and that poor people have hard lives because government benefits do not go far enough to help them live decently. In contrast to other Democratic-oriented groups, a majority (63%) characterizes government as “almost always wasteful and inefficient.”

Advocates for Self-Government

According to The Advocates For Self-Government JONATHAN LULICH is a Libertarian

A libertarian is one who seeks to maximize human freedom and minimize coercion, whether in personal or economic matters. You advocate true “self-government,” that is a free people who organize themselves peacefully and govern themselves. Government, to the extent it exists at all, should be limited to protecting individuals from harm. Some libertarians think that private, voluntary institutions should replace coercive government monopolies. Otherwise, libertarians embrace individual responsibility, voluntary community, and private charity. They also tolerate diverse lifestyles, defend civil liberties, and support the free exchange of goods, services and ideas and believe everyone is better off when left to pursue their idea of happiness as long as people don’t harm one another.
