New Ohio driver’s licenses will take more time, proof

c/o  [OH] Middletown Journal

"New Ohio driver’s licenses and identification cards debuting in January 2013 likely will cost more, require additional documentation and take longer to get. 
Federal and state officials have no current cost estimates to implement the programs in Ohio or nationally, but a 2008 Department of Homeland Security document detailed an 11-year national rollout cost at $9.9 billion under mandates that since have been relaxed. 
Foes of the controversial Real ID Act of 2005 say the federally mandated measure has serious security questions and will never be fully implemented because 15 states have passed bipartisan legislation to bar its enactment and 10 more have passed resolutions denouncing it."

New state IDs in 2013 are part of controversial 2005 Real ID Act.
