Georgia Officials Consider MATRIX

Georgia officials are still trying to decide if they'll take part in a crime-fighting database known as MATRIX. It would require confidential information about millions of Georgians. Gov. Sonny Perdue asked the State Department of Motor Vehicles to resolve legal questions about the issue by Friday, but the agency needed more time to figure out if the multistate database would break state laws.

MATRIX would share information like driver's license and auto tag numbers, marriages and divorces, past addresses, birthdates and credit information.
