Robert Kittle reports:

The South Carolina House gave its final approval Wednesday to a bill to protect children from identity theft by allowing their parents to put security freezes on their children’s credit.

Right now, there’s no way to do that because, since children don’t have credit, they don’t have credit reports on which to put a security freeze. Under the bill, a parent would contact the three credit reporting agencies, which would create a file for the child and then put a security freeze on that file.

Read more on News2. The bill has to go back to the Senate because of changes the House made.
