PA driver's licenses won't be acceptable I.D. to enter a federal facility next month

Come January 30, the Keystone State licenses won't be accepted at military bases and nuclear plants.

About a year later, on January 22, 2018, the license will no longer be good to fly domestically.

The federal Real I.D. Act, which passed in 2005 but has yet to be fully implemented, set requirements for driver's licenses, but the Pennsylvania legislature during Tom Corbett's term as governor passed a bill that said the state would not abide by the law because of the cost. They have not even applied for an extension of the deadline, like New Jersey.

It means you may need a passport to fly in the U.S. next year.
