    PAY ATTENTION TO THIS!!!!
    An Illinois driver's license won't be enough identification to get into most federal facilities after Jan. 10 when the state's exemption from federal Real ID requirements ends.
    By summer, it could mean Illinois driver's licenses won't be accepted as identification for commercial airplane flights.
    Illinois Secretary of State's office spokesman David Druker says the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has notified Illinois that its request for an extension has been denied. Illinois previously was granted two one-year extensions.
    The 2005 Real ID act imposes tougher requirements for proof of legal U.S. residency in order for driver's licenses to be valid for federal purposes. The law was passed after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

    Other states also:
    Missouri residents soon will not be able to use their state drivers licenses as identification to get into most federal facilities, such as military bases, making the state at least the fourth to lose a federal exemption from complying with national proof-of-identity requirements.
    A letter from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to Missouri, obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press, informs the state that its exemption from federal Real ID requirements will end Jan. 10.
    That means Missouri drivers licenses cannot be accepted as ID at military bases and most other federal facilities. It also could eventually mean Missouri drivers licenses won’t be accepted as identification for commercial air travel.
    “As we continue the phased-in enforcement of the REAL ID Act, the consequences of continued noncompliance will grow with each milestone,” the department said in its letter to Missouri.

    The 2005 Real ID act imposes tougher requirements for proof of legal U.S. residency in order for state drivers licenses to be valid for federal purposes. The law was passed in response to national security concerns after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
    The Homeland Security Department previously declared Minnesota noncompliant, and it sent letters in October to New Mexico and Washington indicating that their exemptions also would end Jan. 10.

    States were supposed to comply with the Real ID requirements by the end of 2009. Federal authorities have repeatedly delayed implementation to give states more time to change their drivers license procedures and make the necessary technological improvements.
    At one point, about half the state legislatures had passed measures opposing the implementation of the Real ID Act. Some raised concerns over privacy and a backdoor attempt to create a national ID card. Some of those states, including Missouri and Minnesota, still have laws prohibiting them from complying.
    But the patience of federal authorities appears to be coming to an end, and more states, including Illinois, could lose their exemptions. Homeland Security has been reviewing whether to grant a compliance exemption beyond Jan. 10 to Alaska, California, Illinois, New Jersey and South Carolina. Nineteen other states recently received an extension of their compliance exemptions, most running until Oct. 16.

    Homeland Security has said it plans to announce soon whether it will begin enforcing Real ID for air travel. The department has said it will provide at least 120 days notice before barring people from flights who have driver’s licenses from states that are noncompliant or lack a waiver.

    [What you should know about your ID and the changes which could directly affect you...]
    The REAL ID ACT:
    IDs and driver's licenses as identification
    In the United States, driver's licenses are issued by the states, not by the federal government. Additionally, because the United States has no national identification card and because of the widespread use of cars, driver's licenses have been used as a de facto standard form of identification within the country. For non-drivers, states also issue voluntary identification cards which do not grant driving privileges. Prior to the REAL ID Act, each state set its own rules and criteria regarding the issuance of a driver's license or identification card, including the look of the card, what data is on the card, what documents must be provided to obtain one, and what information is stored in each state's database of licensed drivers and identification card holders.

    Federally mandated standards for state driver's licenses or ID cards
    Driver's license implications
    Title II of REAL ID – "Improved Security for Driver's License and Personal Identification Cards" – repeals the driver's license provisions of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, enacted in December 2004. Section 7212 of that law established a cooperative state-federal rule-making procedure to create federal standards for driver’s licenses. Instead, the Real ID Act directly imposed specific federal driver’s license standards.
    The REAL ID Act Driver's License Summary details the following provisions of the Act's driver's license title:
    Authority
    Data Retention and Storage
    DL/ID Document Standards
    Grants to States
    Immigration Requirements
    Linking of Databases
    Minimum DL/ID Issuance Standards
    Minimum Standards for Federal Use
    Repeal of 9/11 Commission Implementation Act DL/ID Provisions
    Security and Fraud Prevention Standards
    Verification of Documents
    After 2011, "a Federal agency may not accept, for any official purpose, a driver's license or identification card issued by a state to any person unless the state is meeting the requirements" specified in the REAL ID Act. The DHS will continue to consider additional ways in which a REAL ID license can or should be used for official federal purposes without seeking the approval of Congress before doing so. States remain free to also issue non-complying licenses and IDs, so long as these have a unique design and a clear statement that they cannot be accepted for any federal identification purpose. The federal Transportation Security Administration is responsible for security check-in at airports, so bearers of non-compliant documents would no longer be able to travel on common carrier aircraft without additional screening unless they had an alternative government-issued photo ID.
    People born on or after December 1, 1964, will have to obtain a REAL ID by December 1, 2014.
    Those born before December 1, 1964, will have until December 1, 2017, to obtain their REAL ID.
    The national license/ID standards cover:
    How the states must share their databases both domestically and internationally through the AAMVA
    What data must be included on the card and what technology it is encoded with
    What documentation must be presented and electronically stored before a card can be issued

    Federal and state agencies rely on birth certificates for proof of age, proof of citizenship, employment identification, benefit eligibility, and document origination (e.g. driver’s licenses, Social Security cards, and passports). EVVE is the one-stop destination for validating vital birth and death records.

    WHAT IS EVVE?
    EVVE, operated by the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS), provides customers with the ability to quickly, reliably, and securely verify and certify birth and death information. Electronic inquiries from authorized users can be matched against over 250 million birth and death records from state and jurisdiction owned vital record databases nationwide. An electronic response from the state or jurisdiction either verifies or denies a match within matter of seconds. No other system on the market provides access to a more complete set of state and jurisdiction owned vital records than EVVE.

    CURRENT EVVE USERS
    Many state and federal agencies actively utilize EVVE to improve business operations and customer service, and to protect against fraudulent activities. Our customer portfolio includes:

    Social Security Administration
    Office of Personnel Management
    Department of Motor Vehicles
    Medicaid Offices
    Department of Homeland Security - USCIS

    I wasn't aware either.

    The REAL ID Act requires driver's licenses to include a "common machine-readable technology." This will, of course, make identity theft easier. Assume that this information will be collected by bars and other businesses, and that it will be resold to companies like ChoicePoint and Acxiom. It actually doesn't matter how well the states and federal government protect the data on driver's licenses, as there will be parallel commercial databases with the same information.

    Good stuff and good LQQN out oldsoul, thanks for the drop. Here's additional information:


    Licenses From These 5 States Won’t Be Valid to Board a Flight


    Your driver’s license; the one thing you assume will always allow you to verify who you are. That may be to a bouncer at a bar, a ticket teller at a train station, or to a police officer. But folks in a handful of states may not be able to use their valid state driver’s licenses to get on a flight—even a domestic one.

    According to CNN Money, it all started with the Real ID Act, which was passed by the U.S. government ten years ago. The act instructed states to adopt stricter standards for state-issued IDs so that it would be harder for potential terrorists and criminals to obtain IDs. This called for tougher standards for which documents were needed to get an ID ...

    That's what they want. If Americans don't travel, then their worldview is exactly what they are told by the American media...
