A Rare Case of Government Getting Something Right

Washington Governor Signs Bill Rejecting REAL ID

As part of a growing state rebellion, Gov. Christine Gregoire today signed a bill rejecting REAL ID, a new federal identification system that would create a de facto national ID card. Legislatures in four other states – Maine, Idaho, Arkansas and Montana – also have adopted measures opposing REAL ID, and lawmakers in more than 20 other states are considering similar action.

State government needs to stand up to the feds more often.
