NEW SECURITY MEASURES MAY IMPACT RESIDENTS WITHOUT RIGHT ID

Beginning May 3, 2023, travelers may be impacted by the need for more security-compliant ID.  This new federal standard, “REAL ID”, is a security measure that sets a higher standard for identification.  Without the proper ID, an individual might not be able to board an airplane or enter some federal facilities.  For some, this might mean getting a new driver’s license or state ID.  A "REAL ID" is considered a passport or an enhanced driver’s license.
