Legislative Working Group on Real ID

Active dates:Jan. 2016 - March 2016
Governor Mark Dayton and legislative leaders
Function: The legislative working group was created to consider the Real ID policy issue with regards to the feasibility of addressing it in a special session. The working group concluded that the issue should not be brought up in a special session because more public testimony and privacy protections were needed before settling on legislation.
History: The working group was created by Governor Dayton and legislative leaders. There were two other working groups created at the same time: Legislative Working Group on Economic Disparities and Legislative Working Group on Iron Range Unemployment.

Minnesota was not in compliance with Public Law 109-13 regarding federal ID regulations in part due to 2009 Laws of Minnesota Chap 92.

The working group met three times: Jan. 7, Jan. 14, and March 4.
Membership: Co-chaired by Rep. Peggy Scott and Sen. Scott Dibble
Senate members: Dibble (Chair), Carlson, Clausen, Franzen, Hawj, Koenen, Latz, Reinert, Saxhaug, Schmit, Limmer, Ortman, Hall, Housley, Nelson, Osmek, Senjem

House members: Scott (Chair), Whelan, Christensen, Fabian, Miller, Vogel, Smith, Daniels, Johnson B., Quam, Petersburg, Kresha, Cornish, Kelly, Pugh, Mariani, Hansen, Clark

Additional members: Jaime Tincher (Governor's office), Mary Liz Holberg (Public), Yvette Schue (Public)
