 Website Real ID Act passed in US Senate
If you live in the USA, then you should be aware that you may be needing a new ID card in a few years. The Real ID Act was passed by the US Senate on Tuesday. This act has privacy advocates here in the states screaming for a recall vote.

Website - Tip
Quote from the website - The so-called Real ID Act now heads to President Bush, who is expected to sign the bill into law this month. Its backers, including the Bush administration, say it's needed to stop illegal immigrants from obtaining drivers' licenses. Starting three years from now, if you live or work in the United States, you'll need a federally approved ID card to travel on an airplane, open a bank account, collect Social Security payments, or take advantage of nearly any government service. Practically speaking, your driver's license likely will have to be reissued to meet federal standards.
