Real ID Bill Passes Minn. House and Senate, Heads to Gov. Dayton

  • Republicans move to pass budgets without Mark Dayton agreement

If Minnesota wins an extension, as have many other states, residents could still use their regular driver's licenses at federal checkpoints, such as those at airports, through 2020.

Under Dayton's plan, $83 million of that money would go to the state's courts and public safety budget, $45 million for state government cybersecurity measures on state systems and $10 million should be left unspent.

The Minnesota House voted 120-11 on Wednesday to bring the state into compliance with the federal Real ID law; the Senate followed suit later in the evening with a 57-8 vote.

Gov. Mark Dayton and top Republicans have been trading offers in private meetings this week to solve a $1 billion gap in budget negotiations. House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, balked at the idea but said he would hear out Gazelka.

"I think this is fair and equitable, half and half - meet halfway", Dayton said.

McMaster said the president's comments were "wholly appropriate". 'Obstruction of justice is such a serious offense, ' King said. The newspaper said Comey was in the Oval Office that day with other national security officials for a terrorism threat briefing.

REAL ID licenses will cost the same to renew as a regular license, but the real price is peace of mind. "We've entered the cone of silence", he said.

While prospects for settling the budget remained cloudy, the Real ID agreement constituted actual progress on a long-unresolved issue. "Real Minnesotans who are elderly, who are disabled, who are down-and-out, and they're gonna take away services and dollars for them", says Dayton.

Minnesota had been one of the last states in the nation to make sure its state driver's licenses adhere to the federal standards known as Real ID.

The January deadline is still in play. The next deadline would be June 30, when the state fiscal year ends and the state government would have to shut down without a new budget. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove.

Dayton said that so far the two sides are still focused only on budget numbers. "If you get into the policy matters, we are talking about hours and hours and hours of discussion and debate, ' Dayton said this week". "He was delivering a counteroffer shortly after our interview".
