CNN story on the Real ID Act and problems looming

Click on the title to this post to read a CNN story about the Real ID Act, with helpful links to in-depth stories related. The act is set to go into effect in 2008, and will require states to issue a standardized type of ID, which will be required for citizens to fly, to visit federal buildings and even national parks. If you state does not issue you a compliant ID by 2008 (states can request an extension of time to 2013), you will have to use a passport to enter any of these federally controlled spaces. And with the long delays getting passports right now, you had better apply now, if you don't have one!
