From ABC Action News - WPVI-TV Philadelphia:
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – Beginning Jan. 22, 2018, Pennsylvania residents wanting to board a flight will need another form of identification than their driver’s license.
A Pennsylvania driver’s license will not be a proper form of identification for domestic air travel starting on that date due to the state not being compliant with the REAL ID Act. Other states not in compliance include Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Washington…
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the state does not meet the REAL ID requirements due to legislation.
“Our commonwealth does not currently meet these federal standards due to the passage, by the Pennsylvania General Assembly, of Act 38 of 2012, which bars the Governor and PennDOT from participating in REAL ID,” PennDOT states on their website.
