    If I remember, the reason that the Georgia Legislature was looking at blocking the REAL ID act, was that they wanted assurances that the information would be protected. Until they are satisfied that private information would be adequately protected, they are planning on blocking Georgia's conmpliance with the REAL ID Act.


    "State government officials "have said clearly, this Real ID Act will 'impose technological standards and verification procedures, many of which are beyond the current capacity of even the federal government,'" said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) in a speech last night, even though he voted for the measure. Several senators had requested that the driver's license measures be removed from the supplemental bill."

    Unfortunatly I don't have any quotes by Georgia Legislature's as of yet, but I think I originally heard about it on Georgia Public Broadcasting, in a news segment.

    *edit*
    Ran into some more forums regarding REAL ID act

    First thing I'm doing with mine, if passed, is throwing it in the microwave.

    Not to melt it, but to wipe out any data placed on it.

    If you have a new passport go ahead and toss that in the microwave as well.

    I refuse to get a passport.
    Why would I want to visit another country that will more than likely spit on me, try to kill me and/or not allow my firearm(s)?
    To hell with the rest of the world. We have enough battles to fight here.

    slabertooch, I see you didn't click the Source link in my post. It's the same article. :D

    As for the REAL ID, I will find a way to wipe the electronic information. I will not willingly participate in violations of civil liberties.

    Ah yes, the little blue thingy at the bottom of your post, I salute you sir, for your mastery of concealment. :bowdown:

    As for me too, I have a feeling that mine will "mysteriously need to be replaced many many times" hmmm maybe that's the key, a little civil disobedience of a just a few million people needing "replacements" could throw it out of whack. But it would have to happen in the beginning.
