States gets extension on REAL ID

States gets extension on REAL ID”

The Maine secretary of state's office said Tuesday evening that the Department of Homeland Security won't penalize the state for its noncompliance with Real ID standards until January 22, 2018.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted ME a reprieve from enforcement of the Real ID Act until next January as the state moves to become compliant with the law's requirements.

"During this time, federal agencies will continue to accept drivers' licenses and identification cards issued by states with these pending extension requests", said Minnesota Department of Public Safety spokesman Bruce Gordon. Legislation enacted earlier this year set that deadline for getting the state fully up to speed on Real ID.

"The State of ME, however, expects to have a valid waiver at that time", Muszynski said. The law passed in 2005 seeks to improve security standards for state-issued identification credentials. Passage of that law has allowed the state to continue working toward compliance.

Eventually, residents who do not have Real ID-compliant identification would to board airplanes or enter military installations, federal courthouses or federal job sites.

The Real ID licenses, which are created to be more hard to forge, require the user to present an original or certified copy of their birth certificate with a raised seal or a valid US Passport; proof of Social Security Number; proof of any legal name change and two proofs of current, physical Pennsylvania address. Travelers will also be able to use a passport.
