Support HB715 Which Directs the Department of Public Safety and Corrections NOT TO IMPLEMENT the Federal REAL ID Act of 2005

UPDATE: hb715 passed the state house 72 - 22 videos and voting records

brian mcnabb of the louisiana action council emails to inform us that:

During the past couple of months we have continued to keep you apprised on an extremely important piece of legislation that will effect all of us in Louisiana - Rep. Brett Geymann's HB 715.

I am pleased to report that, on Tuesday morning, the House Committee on Transportation, Highways and Public Works voted without objection to send HB 715 to the House floor for a vote.

If passed on the floor, HB 715 would reject the Real ID Act which Congress passed in 2005.

The Real ID Act of 2005 requires that states comply with a federal government mandate to create a national identification card. This unfunded federal mandate is not only a direct threat to our privacy and civil liberties but it is also a blatant disregard of our 10th Amendment rights!

It is a great sign and a good initial step that HB 715 passed through the Transportation Committee with unanimous support. However, the battle has just begun. I urge all of you to take a moment to call your legislators and ask them to vote in favor of Rep. Geymann's bill - House Bill 715!

some additional information on real id from www.nonationalid.com

All U.S. citizens to receive National ID card by 2008

The Real ID Act, passed by Congress and signed by President Bush on May 11, 2005, mandates that all U.S. citizens will receive a National ID card by May of 2008.

Without this National ID, you won't...

* Drive your car
* Board a plane, train, or bus
* Enter any federal building
* Open a bank account
* Hold a job

If you can’t hold a job or have a bank account, how much buying and selling will you be able to do?

Is the coming National ID the prophesied "mark of the beast"?

There is a prophecy in the Bible that foretells a time when every person will be required to have a mark or a number, without which he or she will not be able to participate in the economy.

The prophecy is 2,000 years old, but it has been impossible for it to come to pass until now. With the invention of the computer and the Internet, this prophecy of buying and selling, using a number, can now be implemented at any time. Has the time for the fulfillment of this prophecy arrived?
