VA Legislation to Stop Dangerous ID, the so-called Real ID scam, in Virginia
Va Liberty Defense is one of 10 organizations to join forces in a statewide campaign to add Virginia to the growing list of states to enact anti-Real ID legislation. Twenty-one (21) states have engaged in an all-out revolt against Dangerous ID (the so-called Real ID scam) and have already passed legislation that will nix the federal mandate and more are expected to follow.
Delegate Bob Marshall has taken another bold stand to stand up to Congress and protect Virginians against federal bureaucracy when he introduced H.B.1587 for non-compliance of Real ID, renamed "Dangerous ID" by Virginia activists.
The VA Liberty Defense grassroots lobbying efforts will gain momentum as they take the news of the bill to the districts across the state. They are certain to shake things up in local politics with upcoming state elections on the horizon .

On January 6, 2009, Delegate Clay Athey, Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, addressed the failure of Republican commitment to conservative principles.

And no Virginia tax money should be spent to force them to do… Continue
