Montana Governor Says, "Hell No!" To REAL ID

Montana's governor signed off on legislation barring participation in the REAL ID program and did so in no uncertain terms.
HELENA - Gov. Brian Schweitzer signed a law Tuesday rejecting national driver's licenses for Montanans, saying the message to the federal government was "no, nope, no way, hell no."

"We also don't think that bureaucrats in Washington D.C. ought to tell us that if we're going to get on a plane we have to carry their card, so when it's scanned through they know where you went, when you got there and when you came home," Schweitzer said.

"This is still a free country and there are no freer people than the people that we have in Montana."

Congratulations to the Governor and the people of Montana!
