Legislative Working Group on Real ID
Active dates:Jan. 2016 - March 2016
Governor Mark Dayton and legislative leaders
Function: The legislative working group was created to consider the Real ID policy issue with regards to the feasibility of addressing it in a special session. The working group concluded that the issue should not be brought up in a special session because more public testimony and privacy protections were needed before settling on legislation.
The working group was created by Governor Dayton and legislative leaders. There were two other working groups created at the same time: Legislative Working Group on Economic Disparities and Legislative Working Group on Iron Range Unemployment.
Minnesota was not in compliance with Public Law 109-13 regarding federal ID regulations in part due to 2009 Laws of Minnesota Chap 92.
The working group met three times: Jan. 7, Jan. 14, and March 4.
