Kentucky license may soon not be enough to fly

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- People with driver's licenses from Kentucky and nine other states will have to show a passport or some other form of federal identification by 2016 to comply with a law tightening security across the country.

Under the REAL ID Act of 2005, tougher identification standards will go into effect for "restricted areas" in "all federal facilities," and for nuclear power plants.

In January, the rules will apply to "semi-restricted" areas of federal facilities, with the air travel mandate scheduled to go into effect "no sooner than 2016."

The law requires a driver's license to be issued by a single state agency. In Kentucky, the clerk of court handles the issuance.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokeswoman Lisa Tolliver told The Courier-Journal the state has been trying to comply with the law.
