Real ID in Real Trouble in Maine

DHS all but told the state Monday that it was the country's "weakest link" and that the state needed to change its licensing ways or face the fed's wrath.

Maine is now the lone state not to have been given an extension to long-delayed Real ID regulations, after three fellow protesting states -- Montana, New Hampshire and South Carolina -- got their extensions in the last two weeks despite not pledging allegiance to Real ID. (click here for more)

We say:
  • New Hampshire just lost there motto "Live Free or Die"
  • Does the public understand what Real ID is all about?
  • Some of the rebelling states are making good points. It would have been a good idea for the federal government to build consensus on this program and establish dialog on funding.
