Governor Dayton's office told WDAZ the proposal for tab fee increases first came from Speaker Kurt Daudt a year ago.

Meanwhile, the Democratic governor and Republican legislative leaders are in a standoff over the budget.

Minnesotans may have to shell out hundreds when it comes to buying a new ride.

Republicans said they would respond with a counteroffer, and talks were scheduled to continue into the evening. In the end, the Real ID measure is silent on that question. But in the end, a compromise brought almost every lawmaker and the governor on board. Republicans argued that the state should strengthen a rule that now prohibits licenses for people in the country illegally, while DFLers including Dayton said that shouldn't be part of the Real ID debate.

The January deadline is still in play.

Under the Real ID deal, the issue of licenses for undocumented immigrants will become part of the debate over a broader public safety budget bill.

State officials expect to begin issuing the new IDs sometime next year.

Many Minnesotans may already have Real ID-compliant identifications.

Minnesotans who plan to visit federal facilities, nuclear power plants and military bases will need to show an alternative form of ID in addition to their state driver's license. This would allow current Minnesota licenses and IDs to again be accepted at federal facilities and to be used for boarding commercial flights after January 2018.

Minnesota lawmakers have reached a deal to get the state in compliance with the federal REAL ID law.

But most lawmakers were relieved to finally solve a problem that threatened to create major headaches for their constituents. House Speaker Kurt Daudt says, "His offer was about two-thirds his direction and one-third our direction, and frankly that's just not helpful with just a few days left".

Dayton said that so far the two sides are still focused only on budget numbers. "He was delivering a counteroffer shortly after our interview".
