Idahoans will need to get a Star Card ID from the DMV by October, 2020 if they want to fly or enter a federal building.

The Real ID Act of 2005 was a post-9/11 attempt to normalize government-issued ID standards across the country. Beginning in 2020, Idahoans will need a Star Card to board flights and enter federal buildings. Idaho Matters talks about the new ID standards with the state's DMV.
