Oklahoma not Buying Real ID

April 4, 2008

Oklahoma requested a compliance extension on the 2005 RealID legislation effective March 31st. Judd Morse of the Ada Evening News, quotes Paul Sund, communications director for Paul Sund:

The compliance from Oklahoma was authorized to ensure that no sanctions would be made against Oklahomans, said Paul Sund, Henry’s communications director. “We still have concerns about the act, and we have not promised to comply.

But we thought it was going to be best for Oklahoma, particularly those people that travel a lot, businesses and so forth, to get an extension.” Sund said Henry’s office still plans to protest the Act, and that the extension was made in order to ensure that Oklahomans would not fall victim to any restrictions in May.
