New Federal ID!

Video from Yahoo!
http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/ver/251...php?cl=5923080

New Federal ID program to start as soon as March. Im going to love this at work (TSA), basically your going to have to prove your citizenship and give your SSI number, then THAT information is going to undergo a background check to prove it. All this has to be done through the DMV. If you dont have this stuff when they put this in action in as soon as March, and you try to fly you WILL undergo additional screening. Unless you have a vaild (current) passport.

i work at the airport and i get people handing me passports for 5 and 6 year olds and they are just flying domestic... so question what you must, i deal with the traveling public daily.

So I think this new federal ID program will speed things up as it will make a uniform id for us to check vs every state having their own id's and all of the information all over the place.

Our time clock at work uses "biometrics", your fingerprint, to verify who is clocking in or out.
Since it is almost instant seems like that would work pretty well as a way to ID people coming thru a security checkpoint. It would require a dedicated computer system and people who travel would have to supply their print, but then it could be pretty fast. It would be no worse than having to have a passport.

Even if you have this id you still have to spend the time in line for bags though..that takes the longest i think.

if people would follow the rules it would be a snap!

no liquids through the checkpoint over 3.4oz in size, and they must be in a SINGLE one-quart pastic baggy. ONE per person, you can bring over that, but you got to check that bag.

also, pack in layers, dont just random throw stuff in your back, pack some of your clothes, then space your SMALL (keyword small, ipod, cell phone, chargers, little game things) eletronics ontop of that spaced apart, then clothes ontop of that to keep it in place. All your other LARGE eletronics take out of your bag when you come to the checkpoint and place it in a bin by itself, nothing ontop or under it. large is considered Laptop size. so dvd players are counted in that...

you follow those steps and you will fly right through the checkpoint, unless you forget the easy stuff like your cell phone and keys in your pocket..

but sadly, most of the slow down is from people taking forever to take their stuff out because they have to get all the little kiddies together and claim them down and then ask them what they packed.

I thought this was to make it harder for any illegals to obtain ID, no?
Does it mean we'll be carrying federal DL instead of TX DL?
