State lawmakers propose ignoring Real ID unless Congress funds it
State officials will find out next week what the federal Real ID law will mean for Wisconsinites and how much it will cost the state.
The law requires more secure driver's licenses with more information encrypted. And folks will have to prove their U.S. residency to get them.
Starting in 2014, individuals younger than 50 will have to obtain the new licenses or else they cannot board airplanes or go into federal buildings.
