Progress on repeal of REAL ID Act
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . . Please bring this item to the attention of concerned friends . . . Progress on REAL ID Act Things are looking more-and-more likely for repeal of the REAL ID Act. The Maine legislature got the ball rolling, and now as many as 34 others states are threatening to pile on. It's important to note that the resolution of the Maine legislature was limited. They informed the federal government that they weren't going to embed RFID chips in their state driver's licenses. But Maine may go even further before all is said-and-done, because many other states are contemplating more vigorous opposition. For instance, a committee of the Arizona Senate just voted unanimously to prohibit that state from complying with the REAL ID Act. And Missouri State Rep. James Guest, a Republican, has formed a coalition of lawmakers from 34 states to file bills that oppose Real ID. Now is the time the turn-up the heat on Congress to repeal the REAL ID ACT. Here's where this issue hits you the hardest: If you do not have a REAL ID compliant state driver's license you will not be able to even enter a federal building, or board an airplane! And privacy experts contend that REAL ID will make identity theft easier, rather than more difficult. Please add fuel to the fire: tell Congress to repeal the REAL ID Act. Pressure on Congress can work. It IS working. Send your message to Congress now. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
