Minnesotans don't need new ID for a year

Sen. Carla Nelson Minnesotans can fly worry free

The federal Department of Homeland Security has given Oregon another one-year extension for compliance with the federal Real ID Act, the Oregon DMV announced Thursday.

Pennsylvania and New Jersey are getting yet another extension to comply with a federal law that requires driver's licenses meet anti-terrorism standards. OR is targeting July 2020 to begin offering compliant cards as a new option for customers.

The decision "gives our customers more time to decide if they will need a new type of identification that is acceptable for federal purposes", said Christine Anthony, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Licensing. DMV verifies legal presence and identity, uses facial recognition to guard against identity fraud, and has multiple security features embedded in the cards. The announcement comes a week after Minnesota was granted a much shorter "grace period" for real ID compliance, through January 2018. Every air traveler will need a Real ID-compliant license or passport starting October 1, 2010, according to DPS.

But for Rau, who has heard her fair share of transphobic comments, adds her body shouldn't be anyone else's business. November's issue will pay tribute to the magazine's founder, Hugh Hefner , who died in September .

Minnesota has lagged behind other states in implementing the Real ID Act, which Congress passed in 2005. Participation by states is voluntary, although federal agencies are prohibited from accepting driver's licenses or identification cards from noncompliant states for official purposes (e.g., boarding aircraft, accessing federal facilities, and entering nuclear power plants). When planning a visit to a federal facility or military base, visitors should contact the facility to determine what identification will be accepted.

"You will have time to change your current card to a REAL ID, but you're encouraged to begin the process now by bringing all required documents to an SCDMV branch", said REAL ID Project Manager Melissa Cisson in a press release.

Here's the information you'd need if you want to go ahead and do that.
