New ‘Tru-ID’ licenses to make N.J. debut
New Jersey’s 6 million drivers will have to begin digging up more and perhaps better proof of who they are to meet requirements of a new national security standard for driver’s licenses.
New Jersey on May 7 will become the 10th state to start issuing federally compliant driver’s licenses under the Real ID Act. More than 20 other states are dragging their feet. Some have taken formal action protesting the law or have indicated refusal to comply, citing privacy concerns and cost issues, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
