Support current repeal efforts against the Real ID Act / National ID card law

Dec 18, 2006 Support current repeal efforts against the Real ID Act / National ID card law

The 2005 Real ID Act — which for the first time establishes a national identification card system (beyond social security cards) — passed Congress in 2005 without hearings nor floor debate, as a rider to unrelated legislation.

The time is ripe to urge your federal legislators to repeal the 2005 Real ID Act, now that Senators Akaka and Sununu (a former engineering professor at my undergraduate school) have introduced legislation to curb many of the civil liberties and privacy violations of this bill.

Here is the ACLU’s page on the bill. Here is more, from the Homeland Stupidity page. Jon Katz.
