Real ID bill heads to Oregon Senate for vote

SALEM, Ore. Oregon lawmakers have advanced a proposal that would allow the state to issue state driver's licenses and identification cards in compliance with federal standards borne after the 9/11 attacks beginning in the next three years.

Senate Bill 374 passed on Monday out of a sub-committee with unanimous support and now heads to the joint Ways and Means committee before it can go to the Senate floor.

Even if the proposal ultimately becomes law, Oregon residents thinking about booking flights for next year's family vacation or work trips still might consider getting their passports updated beforehand if need be.

In January, the Transportation Security Administration will begin enforcing the federal 2005 Real ID Act at U.S. airports, meaning state-issued IDs that aren't in compliance or don't have a special extension will be useless for domestic travel, requiring travelers to instead use their passports or some other alternative.
