April 27 '07: Officials from the Department of Homeland Security and faculty from the University of California, Davis will sponsor a town hall meeting for the REAL ID program which seeks to standardize states' license requirements for identification. According to Government Technology, the town hall meeting will be the only open forum in the country on the federal program.
"The forum is designed to seek input from a wide range [sic] public and private constituencies from California and other states on issues and perspectives as they relate to the proposed REAL ID regulations," GovTech continued. The federally-issued guidelines "require every California driver license and identification card holder to appear in a DMV field office in person to be recertified.""Individuals would be required to bring documents including a certified birth certificate, an unexpired U.S. passport, proof of social security numbers and proof of address documents," GovTech continued. Despite federal efforts to standardize the information and security requirements for drivers' licenses, many states have begun to pass legislation which would limit the role of the federal government to set standards for identification.
