REAL ID a real issue in Idaho

Idaho was granted a one-year REAL ID extension from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security last fall after the legislature failed to deal with the issue this past spring. During the extension, federal agencies will accept Idaho-issued driver's licenses and identification cards for official purposes.

The REAL ID Act was passed in 2005 in order to provide additional safety and security for U.S. citizens after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The act modified laws regarding security, authentication, and issuing standards for state driver’s licenses and identification cards, as well as various immigration issues pertaining to terrorism.
