This is all part of the Homeland Security Act. Many of the terrorists that crashed the jets in 2001 came to the U.S. from Canada, some with forged documents.
cave? i live in vegas. But, many many years ago i recall crossing the us/canada border many many times and not once needing a passport. "... last june." sounded like the special liscence was aproved back then, and the use of passports has been used before. And the 9/11 conection helps. but dont be a douche. thanks

It became a requirement last June. They've been talking about it for years. They delayed enacting it for almost two years after they said it would go into effect. The story said when it became a requirement.

"The passport requirement went into effect last June."

You need a passport to get back into the U.S. from any country, with the exceptions noted, also included in the story.

They also have passport cards, as noted in the story. This license will be the cheapest yet, as noted in the story.

Am I being a smart alek? Yes, but if you actually read the story, the question both of you asked was answered.

The story to which you are commenting is from the Duluth News Tribune. I guarantee that they have done many stories on this topic over several years. They don't let you search their archive, but if you e-mailed John Myers at the paper he would tell you the history of the topic and the number of column inches devoted to the story.

You just have not been paying attenion. This has been a story that has had northern Minnesota concerned for years.

Wade,

Just how many John Myers do you think live in Duluth? Way too many!!! I don't think your sources are valid. Since you know so much about duluth, where would a fella like me go to get a portpass?

I can't tell you how happy I am that they waited until I plunked down a $100 for a passport to do something logically.

Put "American Patriot" on the list of people who haven't read AZ's new law, right there next to US Attorney General Eric Holder (who intends to have it declared unconstitutional regardless).

I bet there's only one John Myers that is a reporter for the Duluth News-Tribune. What's a portpass? Is that mentioned in the story? If I were you I'd just pay the extra money to get the enhanced dl. My 'sources' are the same as yours, if only you would pay attention, primarily the newspapers and to a lesser extent the TV stations.
