    Two House lawmakers will introduce a bill on Wednesday that promises to stoke up the contentious debate about creating what critics say is a de facto national identification system.
    Virginia Republican Rep. Tom Davis, and his neighbor and Democratic counterpart Jim Moran, will offer a bill that would set national standards for state-issued driver's licenses. It also would require states to issue high-tech ID cards equipped with a computer chip and "biometric" technology, such as fingerprint data or other unique identifiers.

    The bill is the first concrete proposal to revamp state identification systems, at the federal level, since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania.
