Governor Wolf to Sign Bill Enabling Pennsylvania to Comply with Real ID
May 24, 2017
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced he will sign Senate Bill 133 now that the bill was altered to remove problematic change made in the committee process.
Governor Wolf’s full statement:
“I want to thank Senator Ward and her colleagues for their cooperation with PennDOT and my administration to ensure Pennsylvania can comply with the federal REAL ID law. I am hopeful that the House will not make further changes and I can sign this bill in its current form when it reaches my desk.
This bill achieves the primary goal of allowing Pennsylvania commuters and businesses to avoid disruptions related to noncompliance.
Once the 2012 noncompliance law is repealed, PennDOT can begin working with the federal government to update its systems to complete compliance. We will work diligently to ensure the process is as consumer friendly and affordable as possible.
