WA State: "No way" to compliance scope creep of Real ID

State officials "unclear" what being out of compliance on REAL ID means

c/o Seattle PI - Chris Grygiel

Come May of next year, Washington state will purposely be out of compliance with the federal government's "REAL ID" program for enhanced security driver's licenses which will be required by the Homeland Security Department for travel.

What that means is "anybody's guess," state lawmakers were told Wednesday.

In 2007 the state Legislature passed a law saying Washington wouldn't create a new driver's license unless Uncle Sam picked up the tab and privacy concerns were resolved.


I can see why Washington State is truly confused over terms of federal compliance. They adopted the Enhanced Drivers Licenses. [What more do ya want, Feds?]
