- The REAL ID Act was one of the key recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
- Giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens encourages them to live in Maryland, where they cost taxpayers $331 million/year in education, healthcare & incarceration alone.
- If Maryland does not comply with the REAL ID Act, its citizens will need a passport to board a plane or enter a federal building starting May 2008.
