Gov. Freudenthal Opposes Real ID

Laramie, Wy – Governor Dave Freudenthal is like most other governors around the country. He does not support the plan to create a federal I-D card. Freudenthal says the concern is largely about the cost to implement a nationwide system. He says if they become a reality people will see the cost of getting a driver's license go up significantly.
Montana passed a bill last week saying it will not implement the National I-Ds there. Wyoming lawmakers considered a similar bill this year, but it died in the state Senate.
