Kentucky Halts Real ID Distribution

Kentucky is backing away from its plan to have circuit court clerk’s offices distribute new driver’s licenses that eventually will be needed for domestic air travel.The state started a pilot program in Franklin and Woodford counties to distribute Real ID licenses in circuit court clerk’s offices. The Transportation Cabinet says the program resulted in unsustainable increases in staffing and workload in those offices.”Staffing is an issue, time is an issue, it’s just a lot slower. It’s not the fault of the equipment it just takes longer to do it,” said Greg Helton with the Kentucky Circuit Clerks Association.
