New Rule: Residents In Some States May Need Passports For Domestic Flights In 2018
You may have thought you don't need a passport because you don't travel outside the United States. But for residents of some states, this may change, pending the above info, for any commercial flight, whether international or domestic.
To get past TSA security checkpoints, another form of identification may be required: passport, permanent resident card/green card or a military ID.
The Real ID Act of 2005 insists that state-issued IDs meet the minimum security standards now set by the federal government. 
To repeat, if you’re going to take a flight and you have a state-issued ID from one of the states listed above, unless your state has made federally approved changes before January, it would be safest to use a passport to go anywhere across the country, as all domestic travel is included in these new standards.
Traveling by air seems to have been made more difficult by the federal government, just as it has been made more complicated because of the need to remove our shoes at security check-in. But this new move is considered another way to make traveling safer, and another example of the new normal.

This just opens the door for more stringent border controls between the states.
