LA Governor John Bel Edwards Prepares for Real ID Bill

On Monday, May 30th the Louisiana Senate voted to pass a bill that allows residents to decide whether they want a driver’s license or other state ID card that is compliant with the Real ID Act.

The bill was proposed by Louisiana State Senator Yvonne Dorsey-Colomb (pictured below) and passed with a 28-9 vote. Governor John Bel Edwards plans to sign the bill into law.

Proponents of the bill believe that Louisiana residents should have this option in order to protect their privacy.

As discussed in our last blog post, opponents of the Real ID Act feel that it violates privacy and makes it easier for hackers to obtain personal information due to the fact that the information will go into a database that is shared between states.

Illinois Transitions to Real ID Compliance

Illinois will change the way they issue IDs as part of its efforts to become compliant with the Real ID Act.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, Illinois, along with Minnesota, Missouri, and Washington are not compliant with the Real ID Act.

Illinois will begin the process to become compliant this summer. Tuesday, May 24th, Jesse White, Illinois Secretary of State, announced the steps Illinois will take to achieve compliance. Beginning in July, new licenses and other state ID cards will be mailed to the applicant after they pass a number of fraud checks. In the meantime, the applicant will receive a temporary paper to serve as their identification.

DHS has created the following deadlines:

  • All U.S. Residents flying domestically will be able to use a driver’s license orother form of identification accepted by TSA until January 2018.
  • Beginning January 22nd, 2018, residents must present an alternative form ofidentification unless they are a resident of one of the states which has been granted an extension.
  • Beginning October 1st, 2020, all U.S. residents are required to have a Real IDcompliant license or another form of TSA-approved identification for domestic airtravel.

Jim Harper quote

We have discussed the Real ID Act in previous blog posts, but we have not covered the reasoning for states such as Illinois’ hesitance in becoming compliant. According to the Examiner, several states have not wanted to transition to Real ID compliance because they feel it minimizes states’ rights as well as individual privacy.

Federal funding for Real ID compliance is only issued to states that agree to link their databases to other states so information between DMVs can be shared.

As discussed in Cynthia Hodges’ article on the Examiner, Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies at the Free-Market CATO Insitute and a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Data Privacy and Data Committee, states, “The Real ID Act represents a transfer of power from individuals to institutions, and that transfer threatens liberty, enables identity fraud, and subjects people to unwanted surveillance.”

While there is controversy surrounding the act, the majority of states are compliant or are in the process of becoming so. We will continue to keep readers updated on the act.
