The U.S. Department of Homeland Security still hasn’t granted an extension for Kentucky to comply with stricter driver’s license and ID standards. The previous extension expired Monday.
Transportation cabinet officials had requested the extension last month but still haven’t heard back from DHS.
“It’s kind of hard to assume what the federal government’s going to do,” Transportation Cabinet spokesman Ryan Watts said. “We’re hopeful they’re going to grant us an extension, we just can’t predict how they’re going to act on our letter.”
Watts notes that the extension hasn’t been officially denied and could be granted after the federal Columbus Day holiday. Kentucky is still listed as having an extension on the DHS website.
