    ...and it was passed in the post 9/11 paranoia where every GOP-supported bill that was even remotely related to "homeland security" was fast-tracked despite much of it being bad policy, if not outright unconstitutional.

    Every state, including my home state of Illinois, will have to comply with REAL ID.

    Also, the federal REAL ID act was originally introduced by a Wisconsin Republican, Jim Sensenbrenner.
