BATON ROUGE - Louisiana travelers can rest easier. The Department of Homeland Security announced Friday that states will be given an extension to meet the new standards of the Real ID Act.

Without this extension a state driver's license would not have been accepted as a proper form of identification to board a plane after January 15th.   Now it is.

States will be given an additional year to meet the standards in the Real ID Act.

Currently, 13 states have met the Act's requirements.
