Dayton signs Real ID bill
Gov. Mark Dayton on Thursday morning signed the bill that lawmakers overwhelmingly approved on Wednesday. But in the end, a compromise brought almost every lawmaker and the governor on board.
It will take a bit of time for the state to produce the new licenses and the security system as required by the federal government.
"Whether it's visiting a child at a military base or taking their family on vacation, Minnesotans deserve the peace-of-mind that with their normal driver's licenses they are fully capable of going about their lives and work", said Rep. Dennis Smith, a Republican from Maple Grove who authored the bill.
Governor Dayton has offered two proposals in a compromise to legislators, both including higher tab fees.
UK jobless rate reaches 42-year low
The ONS's new preferred inflation measure of CPIH, which contains a measure of housing costs, rose to 2.6% from 2.3% in March. Food prices also became more expensive in April, rising 0.2% month-on-month after coming in flat previous year .
The bill will upgrade licenses to meet new federal standards.
After that point, Minnesotans will have options: a Real ID license that will allow for access to airports, military facilities and federal buildings, or a standard license, which won't be valid for air travel or entrance to military or federal buildings.
"This bill's been a long haul", Rep. Leon Lillie, DFL-North St. Paul, said on the floor. If granted, holders of state identification could use their licenses for federal purposes through 2020.
Compliant ID will become available in October 2018, which require people to provide more information to prove identity, Minnesota residency and lawful status. Republicans argued that the state should strengthen a rule that now prohibits licenses for people in the country illegally, while DFLers including Dayton said that shouldn't be part of the Real ID debate. Many Republicans wanted to legally ban undocumented immigrants from getting licenses to prevent the possibility of administrative action.

LeGarrette Blount Trusts The Process
A big reason RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed until the Eagles recently handed him a one-year deal is that he's 30 years old. Before Blount struck a deal with Philadelphia , it was reported that New England had a last-ditch effort to make him stay.
Hacking group offers subscription for NSA code
In the same jibberish rant, it has also been mentioned that the hacker group is now planning to follow a monthly data dump cycle. It's unclear if a subscription-based model will attract more interest, with no price announced yet.
