The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted Missouri another extension to comply with the REAL ID Act.

The DHS granted Missouri a grace period through Jan. 21, 2019. During this time, federal agencies will continue to accept Missouri-issued driver licenses and ID cards for official purposes, including domestic air travel.

The current extension ends Oct. 10 but the Missouri Department of Revenue said Missourians should have no issue using their state-issued driver licenses and ID cards when boarding a domestic flight or for other official purposes after Oct. 10.

The federal REAL ID Act was passed in 2005.

A cold start to your Tuesday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. More sunshine returned to northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas this afternoon, but very cold temperatures remain. Highs in the lower 30s.
