Governor Bullock Argues with Feds that Montana Drivers Licenses are Secure

Posted: Updated:

Earlier today Governor Steve Bullock wrote to the Department of Homeland Security arguing their statement that Montana drivers licenses are not up to par with the REAL ID Act of two thousand and five.

Bullock is pushing against the latest efforts of the federal government to force Montanans to implement the REAL ID, urging the feds not to restrict Montanan's ability to use their licenses for federal identification purposes and commercial air travel. In the letter, Governor Bullock outlines why he opposes the ID Program, pointing out in 2007, Montana's Legislature voted unanimously to forbid implementation of real ID in Montana. In addition Bullock identified the steps Montana has taken to ensure security of licenses in the Treasure State. The first phase of enforcement is scheduled to begin Monday, starting with access to the Department of Homeland Security's Nebraska Avenue Complex in Washington D.C.
