Real ID Hearing In Senate Today
The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing today on the Real ID law. It's a little late, of course, as the Act passed with out debate or comment after being slipped into a spending bill in Republican Congress times. Some states have opposed it, and some states have embraced it. The idea of creating a de facto national ID card has more than a few people nervous. The Committee chairman, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, would be nervous if he weren't angry about the whole thing. The Real ID Act may not be repealed, but it might be modified before it takes full effect.
