Enhanced Driver’s Licenses Coming Your Way…
Date CapturedSunday July 27 2008, 5:01 PM
Steven A. Culbreath, Esq. blogs, "DHS has worked to align REAL ID and EDL requirements. EDLs that are developed consistent with the requirements of REAL ID can be used for official purposes such as accessing a Federal facility, boarding Federally-regulated commercial aircraft, and entering nuclear power plants." And... "While the REAL ID requires proof of legal status in the U.S., the state issued EDL will require that the card holder be a U.S. citizen."

July 9, 2008 PRESS RELEASE excerpts: The EDL can be readily obtained by applying at local DMV offices. Since it is a driver license, it will be easier to carry than a passport, making it especially convenient for those who make frequent or unplanned crossings. The EDL will be valid for up to eight years, the same period as a current drivers license. The new licenses will be clearly distinguishable as a limited use international travel document by the added features of a U.S. flag on the front and the machine readable text on the reverse, both identifying it is an “enhanced” driver license. Each EDL will have various new security features within the document that will help to deter counterfeiting.

Date CapturedTuesday June 03 2008, 12:32 PM
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in conjunction with the Bureau of Consular Affairs at the Department of State (DOS), published in the Federal Register a final rule to notify the public of how they will implement the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) for sea and land ports-of entry. The final rule removes the current regulatory exceptions to the passport requirement provided under sections 212(d)(4)(B) and 215(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). On August 9, 2007, the DHS Privacy Office issued a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the proposed rule, which was published in the Federal Register on June 26, 2007, at 72 FR 35088. This PIA updates the earlier PIA for the proposed rule to reflect changes in the WHTI final rule for land and sea ports-of-entry.
