Dayton signs Real ID bill, averting travel woes for 2018

Dayton signs Real ID bill, averting travel woes for 2018

Upon entering Gov. Mark Dayton's office at 8:15 a.m., Republican leaders refused to say if they carried him a new offer. Daudt balked at the idea but said he would hear out Gazelka.

The DFL governor and GOP lawmakers traded budget offers throughout the day, as next Monday's deadline to finish their work loomed. Daudt says Dayton's stance on spending is "out of touch with where Minnesotans are at on these issues and we're gonna keep fighting for tax relief and for money for roads and bridges".

"I think this is fair and equitable, half and half - meet halfway", Dayton said.

In Minnesota, solar has grown 80 percent in the first quarter of 2017, and nearly 340 megawatts (MW) of the current 440 MW installed in the state were added in 2016. "We've entered the cone of silence", he said. In the end, the Real ID measure is silent on that question. Over the past two years, lawmakers have debated the issue vigorously. The new law would require the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to begin issuing licenses by October 1, 2018.

After that point, Minnesotans will have options: a Real ID license that will allow for access to airports, military facilities and federal buildings, or a standard license, which won't be valid for air travel or entrance to military or federal buildings. This would allow current Minnesota licenses and IDs to again be accepted at federal facilities and to be used for boarding commercial flights after January 2018.

The new Real ID licenses will have the same renewal fees as standard licenses, Smith said. Lawmakers struggled for years to pass a bill, raising the prospect of residents being turned away from domestic flights when the federal government requires the new IDs starting in January. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove.

That plan would give $682 million for the Legislature to spend on taxes and transportation, Frans said, with the expectation that they might want to put more toward one area than the other. "I'm grateful we were able to reach a bipartisan compromise that makes that a reality".
