The fate of legislation aimed at bringing New Mexico into compliance with tougher federal identification requirements is now in the hands of the Democratic-led Senate. A version passed by the GOP-controlled House would require residents to get a REAL ID compliant license and allow immigrants to obtain a driver's permit card. Gov.
