(Photo by Stephen Koranda)The state of Kansas is being recognized for having one of the most secure driver’s license designs in the nation. The Coalition for a Secure Driver’s License is a non-partisan, non-profit group that advocates for better security in state-issued IDs. Brian Zimmer, with the coalition, says he hopes the award will attract the attention of other states.

The Kansas licenses use special printing and engraving that makes them difficult to counterfeit or modify. Zimmer says they only give this award once per year to states that make major strides in document security. He says counterfeiting IDs is connected to crimes like credit card fraud and identity theft.
