State Attorneys Do Not Sign Letter
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues took swift action to reach out to their state Attorneys General, thwarting an effort by the retailers to push full chip and PIN technology requirements.

A letter authored by Connecticut Attorney General George Jepson urged card issuers to expedite chip and PIN implementation and asked other attorneys general to join him in signing the letter. In the letter, Jepson stated: “Implementation of chip-enabled cards in the United State is imperative in order to provide stronger payment security and assurance to consumers. As currently stands, however, most chip cards being issued in the United States rely on a signature, rather than a PIN, as the secondary form of verification. There can be no doubt that this is a less secure standard, since signatures can easily be forged or copied or even ignored at the point-of-sale.”
