Speaking of getting a passport...

Thousands of Americans, who have been caught up in a backlog waiting for U.S. passports due to recently enacted regulations are getting some relief, at least temporarily, reports Inside INdiana Business.

The U.S. State Department and Homeland Security announced today that U.S. citizens who have applied for, but not yet received, passports for travel to Canada, Mexico, the Caribean and Bermuda can travel by air with government issued photo identification through September.

NOTE: Passengers must also show proof that they have applied for a passport.

The regulations were eased after passport centers were inundated with requests for new passports, leaving some to wait months to get one.
