Feds grant Pa. extension on Real ID driver’s license rules
The Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Transportation Department is getting more time to implement new rules for making driver’s licenses more secure.

The state says it’ll have until the end of next year to comply with the federal REAL ID Act.
The law is supposed to make it more difficult for terrorists, illegal immigrants and others to get official identification.

PennDOT’s extension allows state residents to continue using their existing driver’s licenses and identification cards for official federal purposes through Dec. 31, 2009.

The agency says the delay gives it more time to figure out what its options are, how much it’s going to cost and how it’ll affect people.
