Your state driver’s license might not get you on planes anymore


AMERICANS DON’T NEED PASSPORTS TO FLY domestically — we’re allowed to use our driver’s licenses to board airplanes. But for 9 states, that may be about to change. In 2005, at the recommendation of the 9/11 commission, Congress passed the Real ID Act, which was designed to push higher security standards for personal ID’s. Over the last 10 years, a handful of states have not complied with the new federal standards, but this hasn’t mattered, as driver’s licenses are a state and not a federal matter.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
