This is legislative equivalent of demanding everyone else give you oxygen when you’ve come to after passing out holding your breath in a temper tantrum.
And as if the republican controlled Congress has the will to act on anything right now.
The legacy of the Missouri General Assembly’s tantrum:
Missouri Revised Statutes
Drivers’ and Commercial Drivers’ Licenses
3. The department of revenue shall not amend procedures for applying for a driver’s license or identification card in order to comply with the goals or standards of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005, any rules or regulations promulgated under the authority granted in such act, or any requirements adopted by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators for furtherance of the act.
Let’s see, George W. Bush (r) was president and the republicans controlled Congress in 2005.
Don’t hold your breath that this will get fixed anytime soon. Better spend your time and money, if you’ve got it, getting a U.S. passport.
