Scientific American has an article about the new national ID program that Bush failed to fulfill, but may come to fruition under a new administration.

Also, I have a hunch that they will just ignore the part about the Bush administration being the ones who initiated this process.

Pass-IDFour years ago, President Bush signed a law requiring states to create driver’s licenses that meet national standards, store related information in nationally connected databases and foot the bill for most of this nearly $4-billion project.
