Legislators not wild about Real ID, but open to compromise


ST. PAUL -- Minnesota lawmakers are still not wild about the idea of adopting federal Real ID standards, but during a meeting with federal officials, they said they are open to compromise.

Like just three other states, Minnesota has blocked adoption of the federal standards for state identification. That means Minnesota driver’s licenses cannot be used to enter some federal facilities and nuclear plants. And it could mean, sometime next year, that Minnesotans will need more than just a license to board airplanes.
