Virginia Governor Mark Warner: Fortells What the Cost Maybe for a New Virginia Driver's License

As previously speculated here on a previous post, that the new REAL ID Act would increase your cost to get a Virginia driver's license, Mark Warner is also sounding the alarm bells.

As reported by the Daily Press our Governor has made the following statement:

"Are Americans really ready to pay $50 to $100 for the cost of a driver's license?" Warner asked. "Are they willing to stand in line for hours on end in a DMV office?"

The Daily Press also reported:

"Congress is considering providing as much as $100 million nationwide to help states implement the law, but Warner said the costs in Virginia alone could exceed $50 million."

Already Virginia has improved its verification process for obtaining a driver's license. How far should the Federal Government make the state go?
