TSA won’t enforce new ID law at airports for 2 more years
NEW YORK _ Fliers who don’t have the latest driver’s licenses will have a two-year reprieve before their IDs are rejected at airport security checkpoints.
Many travelers had been worried that the Transportation Security Administration would penalize them because of a federal law requiring the more-stringent IDs at the start of this year.
But late Friday afternoon, the Department of Homeland Security accounted that passengers could continue using their current IDs until Jan. 22, 2018. Some would have until Oct. 1, 2020.
After those dates, passengers without the proper driver’s licenses would have to use other federally-approved forms of ID such as a passport.
