House backs major shift to electronic IDs

House backs major shift to electronic IDs | CNET News.com: "The U.S. House of Representatives approved on Thursday a sweeping set of rules aimed at forcing states to issue all adults federally approved electronic ID cards, including driver's licenses.

Under the rules, federal employees would reject licenses or identity cards that don't comply, which could curb Americans' access to airplanes, trains, national parks, federal courthouses and other areas controlled by the federal government. The bill was approved by a 261-161 vote.

The measure, called the Real ID Act, says that driver's licenses and other ID cards must include a digital photograph, anticounterfeiting features and undefined 'machine-readable technology, with defined minimum data elements' that could include a magnetic strip or RFID tag. The Department of Homeland Security would be charged with drafting the details of the regulation."
