    US Announces Revised Plan for National ID Cards
    By VOA News
    11 January 2008



    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has released a revised plan for phasing in a national identification card program that was set to begin this year.

    Passed by the U.S. Congress in 2005, the Real ID Act establishes national standards for drivers' licenses and government-issued personal identification cards to make it harder for terrorists, illegal immigrants and others to obtain or counterfeit.

    At a news conference Friday in Washington, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the phased-in program gives states greater flexibility in implementing it and extends the period of enrollment for citizens over the age of 50.

    He estimates it will cost states about $8 to make a Real ID license.

    The original program was rejected by 17 states partly because it was expensive. But the cost of the new plan has been reduced by more than 70 percent - from $14.6 billion to $3.9 billion.

    The Department of Homeland Security says enrollment will be completed for all individuals under the age of 50 by December 2014, and for those more than 50, enrollment may be extended to December 2017.

    But critics argue the ID program could put at risk the privacy of citizens, saying it creates a database of personal information that could be hacked into or otherwise compromised.

    If it contains a chip, I will smash it with a sledge hammer and then nuke it in the microwave. To hell with them and their damn database. I'm not an animal to be corraled.

    why? its for your own good!

    btw, I love the "I dont care, I have nothing to hid crowd"

    Just because you dont mind government having a complete profile of you and spying on your conversations does not mean EVERYONE must be forced into this!


    I cant wait to get my card so I can promptly destroy it. But it will get a bit tough without a card when everything we do must be done with the card.

    I will not accept a new card to smash it. Once you are in the beast (database), there is no getting out. There are grassroots efforts going on around the country to stop the real id.
