Gov. Dayton Asks Homeland Security For Real ID Extension

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota travelers could soon be clear for airport security for another year without a Real ID driver’s license.

Gov. Mark Dayton has asked Homeland Security for an extension to implement the new national security standards.

Minnesota’s current license allows people to use a driver’s license to enter federal buildings, military bases and airport security until Oct. 10.

The state passed a Real ID law in May, and asked for an extension past October.

That extension is expected to be granted.

    If they would not have wrangled over this issue, this would not be a problem. Hopefully Homeland security will deny the extension, then a class action lawsuit can burn up more money Minnesota does not have.
