Little Rock Air Force Base is implementing an Air Force-wide requirement of the REAL ID Act to its installation access policies beginning Sept. 15, 2016.
The act establishes minimum security standards for license issue and production. Additionally, it prohibits federal agencies from accepting driver’s licenses and ID cards from states that do not meet the Act’s minimum standards.
The REAL ID ACT enhances security by improving the reliability of state-issued identification documents and helps prevent a person's ability to evade detection by using a fraudulent form of ID.
Including Arkansas, 47 states, are compliant with the REAL ID Act and will be implementing changes starting mid-September. Currently, Minnesota, Washington and the U.S. territory of the American Samoa do not meet minimum standards.
