The issue presented in the article is that you have to renew your ID or driver’s license to a real ID that will be issued on May 2023. Now this is going to affect everyone because you have to renew it in order to fly domestically. It will be a hassle for many in order to begin the process, as to getting all the paperwork needed. For example in the article it states,”But only 37 percent of Americans have a passport, according to estimates from the U.S. State Department” This highlights the fact that not many Americans are able to obtain their passports so what difference would it make to obtain a real ID.
I feel like this information would be useful to allow me, as a hospitality professional, in order to notify people that travel within the states about the new policy that would take place in May 2023. If I were to work in a airport or travel agency.
