I am happy the states are pushing back. Unfortunately I tend to think it is primarily a budgetary matter for them though. Nonetheless, this is still good. I disagree with the Statists and ACLU (surprise). Rather than repealing th eunderlying bill now, I hope more states pile on. A little assertion of state's rights on this issue would be refreshing whatever the motivation.

The "extension" is an attempt to get states to relax. This Real ID thing got shoved through congress. We have a second chance here to oppose the implementation of police state measures and we can do it at the state level.
