      Sexual predators could be named on Florida driver's licenses

      The words "sexual predator" would be stamped on the driver's licenses of sexual predators under bill language that was approved in the Florida House.

      The words "sexual predator" would be stamped on the driver's licenses of sexual predators under bill language that was approved in the Florida House.

      The language was attached Friday to a bill that deals with a number of Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles issues.

      Democratic Rep. Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed pointed out that would mean department store clerks checking licenses for a credit card application would see that the person across the counter would be a sexual predator.

      Republican Rep. Ed Hooper, who sponsored the amendment, replied, "And I should care why?"

      The stamp would not be put on licenses of sexual offenders, who are not considered as dangerous as violent sexual predators.
