State Representative John Hershey (R-Mifflin/Juniata/Franklin) will host a REAL ID seminar next week for residents of the 82nd District. Beginning October 1st, 2020, Pennsylvania residents will need a REAL ID or another Department of Homeland Security-approved identification to board domestic commercial flights, enter military bases, and enter federal facilities that would normally require ID at the door. There will be a one-time fee of $30 to opt into REAL ID, plus the cost of the license or photo ID renewal. Purchasing a REAL ID is optional. No RSVP is required for the free seminar on Wednesday, September 11th from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, at Cedar Grove BIC Church, in Mifflintown.
