Legislators spar during early session on Real ID


Legislators clashed Thursday over the urgency of bringing Minnesota into compliance with the federal Real ID law as the state faces a deadline that could force residents to need more than a driver’s license to board airplanes.

Democratic legislators offered a couple proposals to quickly bring the state into compliance in a special legislative session, but Republicans said they don’t feel the same urgency.

The federal government has given Minnesota 120 days after an as-yet unspecified date to become compliant with the law or receive an extension. Republicans say that leaves the state plenty of time to fix the issue at the beginning of the regular legislative session in March.
