A bid to let Louisiana driver’s licenses comply with federal law requiring each state to create a national identification card for air travel, including domestic flights, has stalled in the state Senate.

Senators added that language into House Bill 395, sponsored by state Rep. Johnny Guinn, R-Jennings, seeking to reverse a state stance since 2008 rejecting the added security requirement as too intrusive.

But lawmakers bristled at the change, and the proposal never came up again in the Senate.

Officials with the state motor vehicles department have said that if the state doesn’t comply with the federal Real ID law, residents will need passports to fly starting in October.
