HISTORY OF REAL ID IN LA: Link to our previous discussions on Real ID from the 2013 legislative session.....http://www.meetup.com...­

These bills come up every year and we have been able to kill them in the past. However, Feds have new REGULATIONS (AGAIN)requiring adoption this year ... our bills reflect a "choice" for LA residents ...ie a REAL ID driver's license or one that does not comply with Fed requirements.
http://www.meetup.com...­

Please be sure to read the articles in the above link from last year regarding the onerous nature of REAL ID...including the SHARING of your personal information nationwide and possibly worldwide,the requirements that the state KEEP copies of the personal info you submit, and the HIGH COST ($10 MILLION for the first 2 years of implementation in Florida.)
Florida article: http://www.floridavoi...­ (Florida has not been able to repeal their REAL ID law...that should be a warning to us.)


NONE of our bills this year have a FISCAL NOTE to tell us what this would cost.

Article from Cato Institute....testimony before Florida legislature in 2011 when they were considering the Real ID card. http://www.cato.org/p...­
Unfortunately, Florida did adopt the Real ID Driver's license and spent over $10 MILLION in the first 2 years of implementation...... read this for a look at our future in LA with Real ID: http://www.floridavoi...­

Please STOP this assault on freedom, liberty, and states' rights in Louisiana !!!

HB 907 has passed House committee and will go to the House floor this week on Wednesday 4/23 for possible final House passage.
HB 907 has NO fiscal note...... this will likely cost LA taxpayers MILLIONS of $$$$ and put the federal govt in control of more of our private information and ability to move freely without being monitored!

ACTION NEEDED:
Please call the Governor's office Monday through Wednesday at 225-342-7015 and ask Governor Jindal and his administration to oppose HB 907. Louisiana citizens do not want their driver's licenses to become the National ID. An opt-out will only create a group of 2nd class citizens who will be harassed for non-compliance. There is no mandate for states to have a National ID. Let the Federal government issue an ID. Don't hijack our Louisiana driver's licenses!

Also, have your contacts call their representatives in the House Monday through Wednesday at 225-342-6945 and ask them to oppose HB 907 that will make our Louisiana driver's license a National ID card.

REAL ID - HB 907 passes full House WITH AMENDMENTS !!!
How they voted: http://www.legis.la.g...­

NEW HB 907: http://www.legis.la.g...­

According to the amendments, if you "choose" the Real ID Drivers License..... you will agree to waive your "right to privacy" and your information will be scanned, stored in a data base, and shared with multiple agencies including LA law enforcement, the LA Dept of Public Safety and Corrections, Federal Homeland Security, and the FBI!!!
(Anyone here ever heard of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution??? )
As Ben Franklin said, "Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one."

This bill, which will impose a NATIONAL ID card in LA, now moves to the Senate Transportation Comm.

ACTION NEEDED:
We have been able to KILL similar bills in our Senate in the past...... PLEASE CONTACT SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMM MEMBERS AND ASK THEM TO "KILL THIS BILL".
Contact info: http://senate.la.gov/...­

FYI: You can scroll up or page up to previous posts for more info on this bill.
