“The Bush administration will announce today that states will have more than five additional years to comply with its controversial nationwide Real ID program, the second such delay in a year, people briefed on the plan said yesterday.

By May 2011, the program to tighten national standards for driver’s licenses would require motorists born after Dec. 1, 1964, to submit a digital photograph upon application, a birth certificate or similar proof of identity, and a statement on penalty of perjury that information provided on applications was true, they said. Other changes would take effect in 2014.” (Washington Post)
