RealID debate continues in Frankfort

WKYT is reporting that House republicans want Governor Bevin to testify about his plans for a RealID bill, after he vetoed last year's attempt to bring the state into compliance with modern driver's license laws:
House GOP wants public guarantee from Bevin over Real ID
The 2005 REAL ID act "sets forth requirements for state driver's licenses and ID cards to be accepted by the federal government for "official purposes", as defined by the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security." (Wikipedia). "Official purposes" include boarding domestic flights and accessing federal buildings and army bases like Ft. Knox, and Kentucky's current drivers' licenses will not be sufficient for any of these purposes as of Jan 22., 2018.
