REAL ID Pop-Up Verification Event in Milton
Residents of the 108th District who are interested in pre-verifying their documents for REAL ID are invited to attend a REAL ID Pop-Up Verification Event. See information below.

Tuesday, February 5, 5-8pm
Baugher Elementary School
60 Brenda Rovenolt Circle, Milton

Customers must bring the required REAL ID documentation to the event and PennDOT staff will scan the documents to the customer’s driver record and mark it as “REAL ID Eligible.” Then, when REAL IDs are available in March 2019, these customers can apply for their REAL ID online, pay the applicable fees, and it will be mailed to them directly within 10 business days.

“Do I Have to Get REAL ID?”
No. REAL ID is optional for Pennsylvania residents. You will be able to get either a REAL ID driver's license or identification card, or a standard driver's license or identification card. If you have a valid U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport Card, military ID, or another federally approved identification, you may use this as your form of identification to pass a TSA checkpoint at airports nationwide and visit a secure federal building or military installations at any time.

PennDOT’s REAL ID online wizard may help you decide if and when to get a REAL ID. If you know you will not be boarding a commercial flight or visiting a secure federal facility or military base after Oct. 1, 2020, or if you have a valid passport, you do not need a REAL ID.

You do not need a REAL ID driver's license or identification card to do any of the following:
   • Drive
   • Vote
   • Apply for or receive federal benefits for which you are entitled (Veterans' Affairs, Social Security Administration, etc.)
   • Enter a federal facility that does not require an ID (i.e. a post office)
   • Access a hospital or receive life-saving services
   • Participate in law enforcement proceedings or investigations (serve on a federal jury, testify in federal court, etc.)

What Documents Should I bring?
Residents should bring original versions or certified copies of the following documents:

Proof of identity: Birth certificate with a raised/embossed seal issued by the department of vital records or valid U.S. Passport or Passport Card.

Social Security card
: The name on your card must match the name on your proof of identity document.

Two proofs of current, physical PA address
: Common examples include current, unexpired PA license or ID, vehicle registration, or utility bill.

Proof of all legal name changes: Common examples include certified marriage certificate(s) or divorce decrees(s) issued by the county in which you were married, or court order(s) issued by your county’s family court. Please note: you must show a complete name change history that links your birth certificate name to your current name. If you have a valid U.S. Passport or Passport Card with your legal name, you may use that as your name change document.

Use this document checklist to make sure you have all the documents you’ll need to get a REAL ID.

Congratulations to New Eagle Scout Jacob Mowrey!
This week I attended a special ceremony for local Boy Scout Jacob Mowrey. I was thrilled to attend Jacob’s court of honor ceremony and present him with an official citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest achievement that can be reached by a Boy Scout.
For Jacob’s project to fulfill the community service requirement, he helped convert a basement storage space into a woodshop area for The Refuge. The Refuge is a local nonprofit organization in Sunbury that operates an after-school program for teenagers that offers homework assistance and life skills activities.
