Ohio Refuses to Enforce REAL ID Standards







In April, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reportedly will begin enforcing the REAL ID Act, a measure requiring Americans to produce federal government-approved identification upon demand.  In order to ensure that all Americans carry the national ID card, the REAL ID Act establishes standards for driver’s licenses that must be met by states.  However, Ohio has now backed out of the REAL ID program.
