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 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".
