    I just wanted to commend your office’s efforts + thought leadership regarding Digital Identification — it’s great to see!

    I’d like to also offer this: For the love of God, PLEASE don’t let Texas do what Louisiana did.

    Here’s what I mean:

    Sure, States have constitutional authority to issue ID, but one of the most important use-cases for identification is at airport checkpoints, run by TSA … which are Federally regulated via DHS policy and US Law.

    So, while Texas could (constitutionally) run off and hire companies to build nifty little apps and digital ID-related widgets, it is GUARANTEED to be wasted effort until DHS clarifies (via a policy directive) the requirements of REAL ID on the topic of digital identification.

    Once DHS clarifies REAL ID for Digital ID, then there’s a Federal standard. THEN, Texas digital ID can be accepted in any State of the Union and TSA can accept it at airports. Even better: Apple & Google can support the standard in “wallet” apps, which means Texas (and the other 49 States) don’t have to each build its own “ID app”. Even better: Apple Wallet, for example, can be accessed w/o the owner having to unlock the phone — good for privacy; 3rd party apps simply cannot be designed to do this.

    So, key point:

    Texas — and all States of the Union — should lobby DHS to clarify the requirements of REAL ID as they pertain to Digital ID. Please please please do not add to the growing mess of States building nifty little apps w/o a Federal standard for interoperability in-place.

    For more than a month I’ve been receiving a text message from the Tx. Democratic party. I’ve tried blocking, typing STOP, and calling the Austin Tx. Democrats. If the Republicans do this I won’t be voting that way either. Please make them stop.

    Simple question. Why are Justice of the Peace NOT required to have some form of college education before seeking public office. Most positions in Texas NOW require you to have 60 college credit hours, (case in point DPS Officers). Several of our assistant states Attorneys in Hidalgo County who have more court room experience aren’t even making what these individuals will make once appointed and I mean Salary. I would support some form of legislation requiring Justice of the Peace to at least have 60 college credit hours before seeking election.
