My husband and I will be taking a trip back East soon, and he insists that we now need a passport to fly within the United States. We live in California. We haven't been able to travel for awhile because of his health and a diabetic cat. I'm not familiar with new rules. I don't know if he's correct about this information. Can anyone enlighten me?

You don't need a passport to travel within the US but you will each need government issued photo id.

According to TSA a Driver's License or other DMV photo ID is still a valid form of ID:

Hope this helps

Fantastic, that should put the debate to rest, especially your link, wonkerer. Thanks!
Great website, btw. I'm going to hang around.
