A story yesterday which reported that Missouri lawmakers are considering a proposal to update state driver’s licensing procedures to comply with federal law. It's about time. Missouri travelers will have to have this updated drivers license to board airplanes beginning in 2018 so our legislators need to get with the program. This state has dragged its feet on this issue for reasons that make sense only to them.
Opponents believe there are privacy concerns over a provision requiring states to keep license holders’ personal information. I guess forcing people to bring a passport in lieu of compliant drivers license does not affect privacy? Come on you guys, get the licenses up to date like all the other states.
I'm flying today and it would be such a hassle if we needed a special type of drivers license.
