Arizona Cutting Up Real ID?


John McCain and Alice Cooper's home state is considering firing the biggest volley yet against the Real ID Act:

In Arizona, Senate Bill 1152 would prevent the state from taking part in the national standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards.

It passed on an uncontested voice vote Wednesday; a formal vote is scheduled for today.

State Sen. Karen Johnson, the bill's sponsor, said the two-year delay does nothing to dim her opposition.

"I am absolutely against a national ID," said Johnson, R-Mesa. "If we do this, we'll have a nationwide databank that would be a gold mine for ID theft."

Yes, Republicans are taking the lead to reform (or scrap) the law.
