Pennsylvania Receives REAL ID Extension

Pennsylvania Receives REAL ID Extension

Harrisburg – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted Pennsylvania an extension on implementing the federal REAL ID Act, PennDOT said today.

The extension allows Pennsylvania residents to continue using PA driver’s licenses and identification cards as ID for official federal purposes, i.e. boarding a commercial aircraft, entering a nuclear power plant or federal facility that requires identification, beyond Dec. 31, 2009.

“When we requested the extension, we told Homeland Security staff that we are not committing the commonwealth to comply with the REAL ID Act,” said Kurt J. Myers, PennDOT’s deputy secretary for safety administration. “We have been clear from the beginning that unless the federal government fully funds REAL ID, Pennsylvania does not intend to participate.”

Pennsylvania has long been and continues to be a leader among states in the security of its driver’s license products, processes, systems and facilities. Regardless of what happens with REAL ID, PennDOT remains committed to enhancing the security of its products, processes and facilities in a continuing effort to safeguard the integrity of its driver licensing and identification card systems.

The REAL ID Act, passed by the U.S. Congress in 2005, was an attempt to create nationwide minimum standards for states to issue driver’s licenses and ID cards. The law requires changes to state standards, procedures and requirements for the issuance of driver’s licenses and identification cards, if they are to be accepted as identity documents by the federal government.

May 10, 2011 remains the deadline for full compliance with the REAL ID Act.

I agree 100%, if the Federal government wants states to comply then they sure as hell should be footing the bill! Way to go PA for standing your ground on this one.

Agree that it is good Pa.is saying no.But the bottom line is that the taxpayer is footing the bill either way.What really needs to be done is put a stop to all these crazy money grubs!A referendum to clean house would be the answer. All the 2010 election is going to do is change the party and not the policy.
