Step into the next season as you ‘Move Around with Deborah’ It’s Labor Day Holiday weekend.  How did you spend it?  Are you back to travel? Millions of travelers were out and about this last holiday of the summer and I must say it’s like we did not miss a beat.  One thing you must always pack is your patience. Never leave home without it. Can we still wear white after Labor Day?  Yes, you wear what you want to wear.  What do you wear to the White Parties that happen any time of the year? Here’s a reminder, Beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, (no matter what state you live in), or another acceptable form of ID (is passport) to fly within the United States.

It’s The Law

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the federal government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” The Act and implementing regulations establish minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards and prohibit federal agencies, like TSA, from accepting licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards for official purposes, such as getting through the airport security checkpoint to board a plane. The mandate has been delayed several times but now, May 3, 2023, is the current deadline. Refer to
