ABSTRACT

Using State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) Funding for REAL ID Implementation   [open pdf - 67KB]

"On May 11, 2005, the Real ID Act was passed by Congress, creating national standards for issuance of State drivers' licenses and identification cards. The Act established a compliance deadline for all States of May 11, 2008 (or at such date for implementation approved by the Secretary), after which States are to meet certain standards, procedures, and requirements before State-issued drivers' licenses and identification cards can be accepted as valid identification by the Federal government. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is currently working to finalize the rules governing REAL ID compliance. The publication of these rules will establish and clarify requirements for compliance."
