"States are in an uproar"

journalnow.com, the online half of the Winston Salem Journal paper in North Carolina, quotes Marilyn Rauber's Washington Dateline column that looks at state reactions to RealID. They say "States are in an uproar over the Real ID Act." Some quotes:
"It would have been nice if they had consulted with the states," said Kevin Hall, a spokesman for Gov. Mark Warner of Virginia.

States claim that the new federal mandates could cost them up to $1 billion a year.

Montana legislators voted to ignore the law before it even passed.

The article also notes that "The lax rules in North Carolina prompted a scathing report from North Carolina's state auditor, who warned that the state was creating a magnet for illegal workers."
