The governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, has vetoed the REAL ID bill passed in Louisiana.
A couple of months ago, the Louisiana legislature adopted the REAL ID bill to ensure Louisiana’s driver’s licenses complied with federal regulation. By 2016, these new REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses will be required for anyone who wants to enter federally-owned premises or board a plane.
Governor Jindal stated that Louisiana had at least 18 months before they had to comply with the REAL ID regulation. In the short-term, he did not want to expose local residents to “unnecessary federal oversight” by offering REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses.
Although Louisiana has chosen not to pursue REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses, our software is still able to read them. Our desktop, tablet, and mobile software solutions can read any type of ID including military and hunting/fishing licenses from the US or Canada.
