Boustany Pleased to See DHS Grant Deferment on REAL ID Act

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr. M.D. (R-South Louisiana) issued the following statement after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the state of Louisiana will received a temporary deferment allowing federal agencies to continue accepting Louisiana licenses and state identification cards for boarding commercial aircraft and other official purposes:

"Last week, I sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano regarding the REAL ID Act. I specifically asked for a compliance deadline extension for the state of Louisiana. In the interim, I sought for both the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and DHS to accept Louisiana driver's licenses and state identification cards so Louisiana's citizens could continue living a normal life and perform such activities as boarding airplanes and entering federal buildings. I am pleased to see DHS granting this temporary deferment as Louisiana moves closer toward compliance."
