Governors battle driver's license requirements

It didn't happen in Missouri where our governor and legislators moved as quickly as they could to kiss up to President Bush, but governors across the United States are battling the ridiculous requirements that states are being required to add to driver's licenses.
The major part of it is the cost, which I am betting will be worse in Missouri where we have a bunch of new people (contract agents) operating the license fee offices, and a governor who does not want to let the state auditor do her job and make sure taxpayer money and equipment are being properly handled.
There is also a concern about a government decision to make the driver's license the first line of defense when it comes to national security.
