Nevada resumes regular license issuance today
BTC - Nevada resumes regular license issuance today for licenses. The option to get a "gold starred" federal license compliant with the Real ID Act expired after a 120 day trial period, ending April 30, 2010. The local legislature is expected to schedule a hearing to review the effectiveness of the new license programs later this week, according to Rebecca Gasca of the ACLU-NV.
Governor Gibbons issued an executive order to move forward with the Real ID program late last year due to national security pressures following a failed terrorist attack over Christmas 2009.
The State of Nevada passed a resolution requesting the repeal of the Real ID Act in 2007.
