(KSL News) -- New legislation could prohibit Utah residents from using their driver's license to board planes.

The Real I.D. act aims to stop states, including Utah, from issuing licenses to illegal immigrants. Utah is one of 11 states that doesn't require license applicants to prove legal residency.

Utah would have three years to comply with the federal mandates. If it doesn't, residents wouldn't be able to use their licenses for things like flying or conducting federal business.

The bill is supposed to make it harder for potential terrorists to travel in the United States.
