Homeland Security instituted an advanced USA ID program in 2005 but only now in 2014 started to enforce it. In short in order to enter Federal Buildings one must have an "Acceptable" drivers/personal ID which verifies ones citizenship and most accurate residence.
Six states do NOT meet those standards - MA/ME/OK/AK/AZ/LA. Holders of the current IDS are being refused entry to Federal Facilities unless they carry a US Passport.
21 states are in compliance.
21 states plus DC have extensions to comply w/ Homeland Security.
3 states issue a special valid ID.
MA has a political division where the current lame duck Democrat Governor , Patrick wants to issue these IDs to illegals while the Legislature said that is rewarding illegal behavior. Standoff. Current MA holders have been denied entry all over the USA.
2016 will require individuals to have the "correct" ID or US Passport to visit the White House and board commercial airplanes.
