Pa Drivers License Ineligible For Air Travel Come 2018 — A Pennsylvania drivers license will not be accepted for boarding an airplane a year from now.
The state license is not compliant with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005.
And Pennsylvania law — Act 38 of 2012 — specifically prevents the state from being in compliance.
Something is obviously going to have to give, and it will be interesting to see which way. Many civil libertarians, including Evangelist Christians, oppose REAL ID on 10th Amendment grounds and from a fear it will lead to a national identity card. Those primarily concerned about illegal immigration, however, support it.
President-Elect Trump was strongly supported by both sides.
