Hearing scheduled on N.J.’s license ID requirements

    A judge is scheduled to hear arguments on the constitutionality of New Jersey’s tougher new ID requirements for getting or renewing a driver’s license.

    The judge ordered the program halted in May, on the day it was supposed to start, after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit over the requirements.

     

    The ACLU said the state improperly tried to impose the new standards, known as TRU-ID, without publishing details or gathering public comment.
