Rep. Jim Guest vs. Real ID

Today on my show, I spoke with state representative Jim Guest, who proposed a bill prohibiting Missouri from complying with the Real ID act, which creates a national identification card.

Guest is trying to get his fellow legislators in Missouri and other states to fight back against DHS. He's also concerned about the security of the federal database that would be created, as well as questions about privacy, identity theft, and personal security. Since the Department of Homeland Security will require you to have the Real ID when you get on a plane or enter any federal building beginning in May, you may have to use your passport a lot more -- even for domestic flights!
