Passport required for domestic flights out of Louisiana



Starting Jan 15, 2013.

LINK

Thought you may want to know.

Sorry if already posted. I did used the crappy search.

ETA a snippet:

quote:

In most states, presenting a driver's license will be enough to board a plane or enter a federal building because most states are complying with requirements to put more information on licenses and to photograph anyone who even applies for a license, regardless of whether it is granted. But Louisiana residents can't do that because the Legislature adopted a law in 2008 refusing to comply with the federal act. The same action was taken by legislators in 15 other states and, according to Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Stephen Campbell, several other states haven't complied, even though their legislatures didn't pass similar laws.

Of course they did. I thought about running for State Legislature in the future, but then realized who my colleagues would be and there's no doubt I would jump off the Capitol observation deck after listening to those idiots for an hour.

How are the real ID requirements different from a Passport?

I always travel with my passport, never know when I'm going to run into Sergio and take an impromptu trip around the world.

Aside from it being a usurpation of power by the federal government, the point remains that many people can easily live their whole life without ever having a passport and not suffer any consequences or inconveniences for that decision.


But your question is flawed because it presupposes that there isn't anything sinister about passports.

Looks like it's time for everyone to get a passport. It's really a good thing to have anyways.
