TSA threatens to stop accepting driver’s licenses from nine states as of Jan 10

Government programs are only “voluntary” until the bureaucracy administering them decide otherwise. Never trust a bureaucrat. Also, interesting to note that states that pride themselves on subverting federal authority (I’m looking at you, Georgia, and The South in general) have signed up for this glaring security hole when so-called “liberal nutcase” states (California) are fighting for the citizens’ right to privacy.

When Congress passed the 2005 Real ID act — mandating easy sharing (and intrinsic insecurity) — of driver’s license data, they insisted compliance by states with the rules would be voluntary.
