New Hampshire to Reject REAL ID

New Hampshire is about to become the first state to reject the federal REAL ID proposal.

Governor John Lynch has said he will sign a pending bill which would reject the proposed new federal standards for driver's licenses, and the money that goes with them.

The bill has passed the state House, and was approved on April 26 by the state Senate committee considering it.

The leader behind the move to reject REAL ID is Rep. Neal Kurk, well-known for his privacy advocacy. The effort is drawing national attention.

He and others in the state see REAL ID as ineffective and an intrusion on individual privacy.
