 From what I heard, the passport office deals with cash so infrequently, 
the cost of handling cash (storage, security, bank deliveries) was too 
much.   They could cut costs by not accepting it.  Would only affect the 
1% of people who paid in cash.  How many people who travel don't have 
access to a debit or credit card.
