Real ID part one

The full Senate passed legislation that repealed the ban on studying Real ID. Real ID is a set of standards created by the federal government in regards to identification cards and driver licenses. Minnesota was one of a handful of states that rejected the guidelines, citing concerns regarding citizen privacy. However, it was announced last year that people without the new identification may be unable to board domestic flights, which has forced the state to adopt Real ID standards. While this legislation did not implement the federal standards, it does pave the way for the eventual acceptance of the standards and additional legislation to prepare for implementation. (S.F. 1646)
