About the issue:

The Real ID Act creates a federal identity document that every American will need in order to fly on commercial airlines, enter government buildings, open a bank account, and more. 

It creates huge administrative burdens for state governments, while providing only minimal federal funds for implementing its onerous requirements.  At the same time, it does nothing to combat terrorism, and puts us at greater risk for invasions of privacy and identity theft. 

On this page you can learn more about Real ID: the costs, the burdens, and the real bureaucratic nightmare coming to a DMV near you.
