SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - State agencies would be forbidden from complying any further with the federal Real ID Act under a measure the Utah House has approved.
The move could mean that the state's residents won't be able to board airplanes or enter federal buildings in the future.
The Real ID Act was launched after the 2001 terror attacks to make driver's licenses more secure, so that eventually all driver's licenses would have several layers of security features to prevent forgery.
Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, an Orem Republican, contends those security features could eventually lead to the government tracking its citizens.
House Bill 234 was approved 68-3 on Thursday. It now advances to the Senate.
