Kentucky lawmakers advanced a bill that would grant the commonwealth an extension when it comes to being in compliance with federal rules regarding drivers licenses.

House Bill 410 passed the Senate Transportation Committee on Wednesday afternoon.

The so-called “Real ID Bill” is expected to be supported by Governor Matt Bevin.

If Kentucky does not comply with the Federal Homeland Security Regulation, the state’s driver’s licenses could not be used to access military bases starting June 6 or to fly on commercial airplanes in January of next year.

This latest bill would grant Kentucky an extension until the state starts issuing federally-approved ID’s in 2019.
