If you've been at the airport recently (and I'd be willing to bet you have, heading to meetings and conferences), you've probably seen the signs about new requirements for ID that will be going into effect October 2020. The new rules are part of the REAL ID Act which was passed in May 2005 and set new standards for driver's licenses and ID cards accepted at federal facilities and airport security checkpoints.
