Pennsylvania has a real problem with it's 'Real ID' law

The Keystone State is one of just six states that have yet to comply with federal standards to make driver's licenses more secure.

State Senator Mike Folmer helped lead the push-back in Pennsylvania against those standards.  He says he's not sure what the new card could do to make him safer as a U.S. citizen.

If the Real ID reforms are not realized soon, then starting next year, Pennsylvania residents will not be able to board airplanes using just a traditional driver's license.

Governor Wolf have vowed not to let that happen. He says Pennsylvania will be in compliance somehow, someway by next year.
