Tenn. Gov. Phil Bredesen thinks his state is "ahead of he curve"

Tennessee's governor has a blog, and on July 18 he wrote about the RealID act, following a discussion at a givernors' conference with homeland Security Secretary Chertoff. The governor feels that "Tennessee is ahead of the curve on this one due to the legislation from last year which established the two classes of liscenses (regular and a "not for identification" certificate). We are already doing many of the things that this would require, and so if it comes to pass should not affect us as severely as many of our neighbors. "

He also noted that some gvernors are worried about implementing it. I suspect he will be shocked when his IT people tell him what it will cost to implement.
