Next Phase Begins for Real ID

World Review | Endtime Magazine Sept/Oct 2014

The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, has entered its next phase of enforcement. Those holding non-compliant state ID’s will not be able to use those cards to enter “restricted areas for all Federal facili- ties and for nuclear power plants” according to the DHS website. The next phase of the four-phase plan will go into full enforcement on January 19, 2015. For states still not in compliance by that date, the department plans to no longer accept those IDs for air travel. The Act is managed by the Department of Homeland Security as a way to standardize information collected by states before issuing IDs.
