Kentucky's alcohol landscape is changing, and the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control said it's working daily to ensure that it matches industry growth with exceptional and efficient customer service. ABC is responding to changing industry and licensing demands by streamlining procedures and improving internal operations to better assist applicants and licensees, an ABC news release said.
Kentucky's decision to ignore federal security regulations for driver's licenses will begin inconveniencing residents in coming weeks, and the pain is expected to become widespread by early next year. Beginning Jan. 30, Kentuckians no longer will be able to use their driver's licenses to enter the two military bases in the state -- Fort Knox and Fort Campbell. If Kentucky does not comply with the REAL ID regulations by Jan. 22, 2018, residents won't be able to use their state-issued license to board planes for domestic flights.
