New Hampshire says NO!

This new state law in New Hampshire seems to require the state not to cooperate with Real ID. Speaking frankly, the law's text calls Real ID a "National Identification System." The Meat and Potatoes of this law is very brief, so I will quote it here in full:
Prohibition Against Participation in National Identification System. The general court finds that the public policy established by Congress in the Real ID Act of 2005, Public Law 109-13, is contrary and repugnant to Articles 1 through 10 of the New Hampshire constitution as well as Amendments 4 though 10 of the Constitution for the United States of America. Therefore, the state of New Hampshire shall not participate in a national identification card system; nor shall the department of safety amend the procedures for applying for a driver’s license under RSA 263 or an identification card under RSA 260:21.
