Senate approves REAL ID legislation

FRANKFORT--The Senate passed a bill Tuesday that would bring Kentucky's state ID program into compliance with a federal standard that has a fast-approaching deadline. Senate Bill 245, passed by a 26-12 vote, would make REAL ID-compliant state-issued identification available to Kentuckians.

REAL ID is a federal program adopted in 2005 that would come close to establishing a national proof-of-identity program.

Editor's Note: The Senate Committee Substitute language: adjust fees for various documents to reduce regular operator's license fee from $50 to $48, Combination motorcycle / operator's license from $60 to $58, and personal ID cards from $30 to $28. Thank you David C. Harris, Director of Governmental Affairs for Kentucky Association of REALTORS (TM) for that info.
