Senate rejects Real ID measure over driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants

Five members of the Senate's Republican majority joined DFLers to reject the Real ID compliance bill on a 38-29 vote, which came after a debate that saw lawmakers from both parties accuse the other side of playing politics on an issue with practical implications for many Minnesotans.
