Real ID Bill To Be Voted In House On Wednesday

The Real ID Repeal bill  goes before the full A&B committee tomorrow at 3pm. 
  The Constitutional Alliance released this bulletin to inform concerned Oklahomans of the ramifications of the legislature’s actions.

“In 2007 Oklahoma legislators –unanimously- passed a law prohibiting the implementation of the REAL ID Act, finding that the “federal REAL ID Act of 2005 is inimical to the security and well-being of the people of Oklahoma. . .”

Citing issues related to the costs of implementing REAL ID, harm to liberty and privacy interests of the people and federal overreach, at least 25 states passed a law or resolution prohibiting the implementation of Real ID in their states.
This year some have decided to its time to implement the federal REAL ID Act in Oklahoma.

The governor and Senate leadership worked on Senate Bill 1362, which would create two state identification cards, said state Sen. David Holt.

Enforcement of the guidelines has been delayed as several states refused to comply.

Cruz takes massive early lead in Wyoming

The live results:

  The Casper Star tribune explains the unique Wyoming process, here:

  Wyoming Republicans will gather in each of the state’s 23 counties today to decide on a presidential nominee.
  But while they’ll select 12 delegates to send to the Republican National Convention in July, the process won’t be complete for another month.
  That’s because Wyoming’s selection process stretches over three events — caucuses held earlier this month, today’s county conventions and a statewide convention in April.
