Homeland Security rejects Minn. request for Real ID extension | 22 Dec 2015 | The federal government has denied a request from the state's political leaders for more time to get compliant with the new Real ID requirement, but it won't immediately imperil the ability of Minnesotans to board commercial flights after Jan. 1. In a letter sent Monday, two assistant secretaries at the Department of Homeland Security wrote to Gov. Mark Dayton (D) that “Minnesota has not provided adequate justification for continued noncompliance with the Real ID standards that would warrant granting your request for extension,” the letter stated. That means Minnesota driver's licenses are officially not sufficient identification for the general public to be allowed on U.S. military bases and other federal facilities with semi-restricted areas that are accessible with proper identification. At a still-unspecified date in 2016, Homeland Security will extend that prohibition to the boarding of commercial flights.
