Real ID bill passes Ky House

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) – A solution to Kentucky’s Real ID bill has cleared the Kentucky House of Representatives, the first step to bring state identifications up to federal standards.

If the state doesn’t take steps to comply with the Real ID standards, Kentuckians would have to show a different form of identification to board domestic flights in 2018.

The move isn’t the first time Kentucky has come close to resolving the issue.

The legislature passed a Real ID bill in 2016 but Governor Matt Bevin vetoed it.

The bill now moves on to the Senate.
