DIGEST: Good bill- Bad bill, Expanded Presidential Cyberpowers

Two months ago, REAL-ID went into effect in Florida and many residents are having problems proving their identities to obtain the new driver’s licenses.

Why it's bad: Requires photo identity to be imported onto Social Security Cards and a Real ID Act compliant ID to be able to open a bank account.
