Oklahoma citizens may be limited by state-issued identification when it comes to travel or entering federal buildings.

Concerns have continued to rise since the Real ID Act was passed by congress 10 years ago. 

It appeared that state-issued identification would not meet federal standards, but the Department of Homeland Security has extended the sooner state's deadline to October 2016. 

Residents are still able to use state drivers licenses. Federal officials say they'll give a notice of at least 120 days before making any changes that affect Oklahomans.
