    In obtaining a real ID and reviewing the list of valid documents to prove citizenry and place of residence, I found it rather telling that a ballot is not considered proof of anything. It is also interesting that my selective service papers are not considered proof of citizenship. Who else would be registered for the draft other than a citizen?

    The Department of Homeland Security has pushed back the Real ID deadline until 2023. Originally, air travelers were going to need to have a Real ID by October 1, 2020, in order to board a domestic flight. Last year, the Trump Administration bumped that deadline out a year to October 1, 2021. Now, it’s been bumped out all the way until May 3, 2023...

    Well, it's finally happened. After years of effort and warnings and threats, with Oklahoma becoming compliant, the Federal Government has officially declared that all 50 States are now compliant with REAL ID. So now, to obtain State Identification Cards and Driver's License Cards, all 50 States have the same minimum requirements and standards. For all our Republican States - Democrat States divisions right now, at least we have this in common - and right now we could use everything possible in common.

    The requirement for Americans to obtain a Real ID for travel will be delayed one year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Thursday. Americans will now have until Oct. 1, 2021 to get Real ID Act compliant identification needed to board commercial flights, enter federal buildings or gain access to American nuclear plants. President Trump recommended the delay earlier this week to ease crowding at Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices. SNIP

    The Oct.1 deadline for millions of California drivers to get a REAL ID has been indefinitely extended because of the spreading coronavirus, which should ease some of the pressure on the DMV, where it is taking up to three months to book appointments for a required office visit. President Donald Trump’s announcement this week was greeted with relief by drivers and travel groups. Trump did not say what the new deadline would be. So far, 7.6 million state motorists have gotten a REAL ID. But about 16 million do not have a REAL ID, and without it or a valid...

    California residents, facing a mandatory background check on ammunition sales starting in July, will need to bring an updated ID, passport or birth certificate with them to buy ammo. (Photo: Chris Eger/ just over a week to go before a looming ammunition control law takes effect, California officials are backing a new requirement that could leave many unable to buy ammo. Prop. 63, approved by voters in 2016 after an effort by now-Gov. Gavin Newsom, requires a background check be conducted on all sales of ammunition in the state. Set to go live on July 1, the California Department of...

    As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) slowly implements the REAL ID Act of 2005, ID standards will change at airports around the country. This month, the government will expand its outreach program to spread information to travelers about the change. Effective Jan. 22, 2018, the DHS will no longer accept state-issued IDs from half the country. Travelers from “noncompliant” states will need to show an alternative form of ID, such as a passport, when boarding a plane.

    Beginning in January, Pennsylvania residents will no longer be to use their driver’s licenses to enter federal buildings, and one year later, they won’t be able to use their licenses to board a commercial airplane, the Department of Homeland Security wrote in a letter to the Transportation Department, which was released on Thursday. […] That’s because Pennsylvania — and five other states — failed to comply with the requirements of the REAL ID Act of 2005, a law that called for improved security measures in the wake of 9/11 which would make IDs counterfeit-proof and would store photos and other...

    Beginning on Jan. 30, 2017, federal agencies are prohibited from accepting driver’s licenses and identification cards that were issued by non-compliant states for “official purposes.” In other words, if you do not have a form of identification that complies with the Real ID Act, you will not be allowed to enter a federal building, facility, military base or courthouse. Beginning on Jan. 22, 2018, a driver’s license or state ID from a state that is not compliant with the Real ID Act will not be accepted to board a commercial aircraft within the United States.

    Millions of air travelers across the U.S. are potentially at risk of finding themselves grounded in the new year thanks to a post-9/11 law that took a decade to finally come into effect. The REAL ID Act, originally passed in 2005, was meant to tighten standards for government-issued IDs like driver's licenses -- to boot, it banned federal agencies from accepting any IDs that don't meet the bar. That means the TSA technically shouldn't accept driver's licenses from certain states, once the law is in full effect. While Washington let the rules slide for years, the Department of Homeland Security...

    It's growing increasingly likely that anyone carrying an Illinois driver's license will face even more hassle at the airport in 2016. The Department of Homeland Security has denied the state's bid for another extension to become compliant with the Real ID Act, which means identification cards currently issued by the Illinois secretary of state's office won't meet federal standards for clearing airport security. More immediately, as of Jan. 10, 2016, Illinois-issued IDs will no longer suffice for accessing U.S. military bases and other federal facilities where an ID is required for entry, the secretary of state's office said. The Department...

    Come 2016, your state driver’s license may not be enough to get you on a commercial flight. On Oct. 10, the Department of Homeland Security began enforcing the last phase of the Real ID Act, which establishes minimum security standards for states and United States territories when issuing identification, primarily driver’s licenses; and prohibits certain government facilities and — most relevant to travelers — the Transportation Security Administration from accepting them as proof of identification if they were issued by a noncompliant state. But don’t fret just yet. Initially, enforcement is limited to those entering federal and military facilities and...

    State driver’s licenses are among those from four states that will no longer cut it for clearing airport security under tightened measures that will go into effect sometime in 2016. But travelers may not face any obstacles anytime soon. The DMV has asked for an extension from Homeland Security for the Real ID Act, which calls for the extra ID measures in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. “We have no reason to believe that any New Yorker will have a problem using their current state-issued ID card to get on a plane come January 2016,” the DMV said...

    If you don’t have a passport already, you may need to get one soon. Residents of certain states are going to need to show their passports — rather than simply their IDs — even if they’re only flying domestic. Yes, it will infringe upon states’ rights handed to them by the 10th Amendment and create unnecessary cost to taxpayers in order to implement the change, but let’s be real — the government doesn’t care about that.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Illinois residents might not be able to use their driver's licenses at airports starting in 2016. The Daily Herald reports the licenses don't meet requirements set by the 2005 Real ID Act that were meant to increase security. Illinois doesn't require a birth certificate to get a driver's license, which Illinois Secretary of State spokesman Henry Haupt said is one of the law's mandates. Haupt said state legislators would have to approve funding for changes to driver's license requirements. He said he's not sure how much it would cost, but the Secretary of State's office previously estimated...

    Starting in 2016, the Transportation Security Administration will require all airline passengers to present a REAL ID compliant identification card or a passport in order to board a flight. The Department of Homeland Security estimates that 20-30% of Americans live in jurisdictions that are not REAL ID compliant, meaning their driver's licenses will no longer be accepted during security checks at the airport.

    It took more than two months, but on Thursday Dee Holden found out her Georgia driver’s license had been renewed. “I was so relieved and so thankful,” she said. Holden, a Whitfield County resident, first went to the Dalton office of the Department of Driver Services in August to have her license renewed. A Georgia license holder for almost 40 years, she thought the visit would be routine. “I went Aug. 15. I called first, and the phone message gave me directions. I was sitting there and I saw something that said you have to have bills and you have...
