TSA May Soon Stop Accepting Airline Passengers’ Driver’s Licenses in Some State

Airline passengers in some states may soon need more than a driver’s license to board a plane, the New York Times reports. 

Homeland Security officials want states to begin complying with a decade-old law that requires them to comply with federal standards when issuing driver’s licenses.

That means airline passengers will need another type of government-issued identification if their states don’t provide driver’s licenses that comply with federal standards established after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Some states that aren’t in compliance still have some type of enhanced driver’s license available that has been deemed appropriate for now.

Applicants for federally compliant licenses must prove their identity, immigration status and Social Security number, among other information.

FBI Is Scanning Driver’s License Images to Make Potential Matches

The FBI is scouring state databases of driver’s license photos to search for face matches of criminals, WND reports.

“A probe photo refers to the photo of the subject of an active FBI investigation that is submitted for search against a photo repository,” states the FBI’s agreement with Illinois, which is nearly identical to agreements with other states.

“The anticipated result of that search will be a photo gallery of potential matches. These potential matches (candidates) will be forwarded to the FBI, along with any associated information stored with the photo.”

The database allows the FBI to use facial recognition systems.
