Missouri bill passed to comply with federal Real ID law

The Missouri Legislature passed a bill aimed at complying with the federal Real ID law. Missouri was one of only five states not in compliance with the Real ID Act that was passed after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

State Senator Dan Hegeman, a Republican from Cosby, says the measure passed by the General Assembly addresses privacy concerns some lawmakers had over the Real ID. If signed by Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, the Real ID law should allow state residents to use their drivers license for domestic flights and give access to federal buildings and military bases with their existing ID.

Hegeman made his comments following a Legislative Breakfast this morning hosted by the Maryville Greater Chamber of Commerce
