REAL ID implementation postponed from Dec. 31

Last Friday, December 18, Secretary Janet Napolitano of the Department of Homeland Security announced that states are being given additional time to comply with the REAL ID Act, which would have gone into effect in just a few days on December 31. That gives us that much more time to continue our advocacy on this issue which, if fully implemented, creates considerable burdens for transgender people obtaining appropriate ID. You can read more info on the DHS website.
