New ID Rules at the Airport Are Pushed Back to 2020

O'Hare International Airport

In this post, we discuss the new ID rules for domestic air travel and how their enforcement has been pushed back to October 2020.

Good news for air travelers!

U.S. domestic air travelers were granted a reprieve on meeting new flight rules.

All 50 states have met the January 22, 2019 deadline to become compliant with Real ID or were granted an extension to do.

This means that passengers can continue to use their driver’s licenses at airport security checks for domestic flights.

Your current Illinois driver’s license or ID card (DL/ID) will be accepted at airports, military bases, and secure federal facilities until Oct. 1, 2020.

 

The new ID rules for domestic flights

The Real ID Act was passed by Congress in 2005, in the wake of 9/11, to raise security standards nationally for all state-issued driver’s licenses.

Is your license compliant?

Take a quick look at your driver’s license. Does it have a star in the upper right corner?

The new REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses have stars in the upper right corner to show that they meet current security standards.

Wheaton Named Best Place to Live in Illinois

Wheaton Illinois Best Cities to Live In

Money Magazine has named the city of Wheaton the top ranking city in Illinois in it’s annual “Best Places to Live in Every State” list.

“Founded by a group of abolitionists in the 1850s and home to the Wheaton Flag antislavery newspaper, this safe, well-educated suburb of Chicago has a rich history readily discovered at the DuPage County Historical Museum, founded by John Quincy Adams — a distant relative to the president of the same name — in 1891.” read the article in its summary.

This year’s best-rated cities needed to have populations of at least 50,000 and were rated based on several factors including affordability, safety, convenience, local economy, cost of buying a home to median household income.

Wheaton Il DowntownWheaton, Illinois, population 53,585, is the county seat of DuPage County and has been highly ranked highly before in other publications because of its high-quality schools and low crime.

Only two cities in Illinois made the top 100: Wheaton at 27 and Schaumberg at number 34.

Suggestions for attractions in Wheaton from Money included taking a horse-drawn carriage ride through Downtown Wheaton, stopping at the historic The Little Popcorn Store, and visiting the Cosley Zoo.

Also noted was that the median home sales price was $350,000 in the first quarter of 2018.

Congratulations to the City of Wheaton for being recognized as the best city to live in Illinois!
