I would be happy to pay for access to the SWAs, but I do balk at giving them my social security #, thereby risking identity theft. Several years ago when I objected, the bureaucrat I talked to insisted they needed it to track down dead-beat dads who refused to pay child support. ????? Last month, I tried again to get the pass and was told the department needed my social security # to keep track of wildlife. Again??????
I wrote to Governor Polis almost a month ago asking if there were any way that an ordinary citizen of Colorado could pay to visit a state wildlife area without giving out a social security number. I have received no answer. Have any of you had any luck in buying the new pass without revealing private information?
Thanks, Carol Cushman, Boulder County
