The Real ID Act repeals the section of the 9/11 Act under which DOT had the lead to set minimum standards for driver's licenses and State-issued personal IDs through a negotiated rulemaking. DHS now has the lead, and is to consult with DOT and the states. A negotiated rulemaking is no longer required.
