Despite receiving an extension from the Department of Homeland Security to comply with REAL ID laws, it’s unclear what might happen to Montana citizens come 2016 when their state-issued driver’s licenses may not be an acceptable form of identification to board a commercial flight.
State officials, including Gov. Steve Bullock and Attorney General Tim Fox, say regardless of what the federal government does over the next few years, the state of Montana will not comply with federal regulations created after 9/11 that they believe are overreaching and violate citizens’ privacy.
The federal rules would standardize driver’s licenses across the country and require that states maintain databases with information the federal government can access.
