REAL ID Act of 2005,H.R. 418 (National ID Card)

Time is of the essence; this bill has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. So far, no date for a hearing has been set but this legislation must be stopped in its tracks.

It repeals Section 7212 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 relating to national ID's and replaces it with Congressman Sensenbrenner's version that was supposedly a deal breaker to the IRTP Act last fall. The Senate made a lot of hay protesting that Sensenbrenner's bill went too far yet it rears its ugly head again.

The bill calls for rapid implementation of Federal standards for drivers licenses including, "at a minimum...a common machine-readable technology, with defined MINIMUM data elements." All states are REQUIRED to participate in an interstate agreement to share their databases with all other states AND with all departments and agencies of Federal, state, and local governments.

The motor vehicle databases "shall contain, at a minimum" all data fields printed on licenses and ID cards as well as "motor vehicle drivers' histories, including motor vehicle violations, suspensions, and points on licenses."

The repeated use of the word "minimum" guarantees there will be no limit on the amounts and types of required information. Drivers' histories and digital facial images are mandatory but the Secretary of Homeland Security has full authority to order any and all other information that will then be linked in a database available to ALL government agencies. A little dossier-building, anyone?
