Found this article on slashdot. Not completely an access issue yet, but it could be in the very near future.

From the article:

The IDs will be required for access to all federal areas including flights, state parks and federal buildings.

Are state parks regulated by the feds?

They'll make it harder to get into parks than it is to cross our borders.
Laugh

Technically, I guess.

What do they expect US citizen terrorists to bomb our parks now?

This is going to happen unless we the people fight it congress. You must write your representatives and tell them to stop it.

I think that synopsis on Slashdot said "state parks" incorrectly. The article that it was summarizing only mentions "national parks".
I'd like to see them try to card everyone entering the Adirondacks Tongue
(largest state park in America, containing a few hundred towns. 40 roads enter it, as well as the main highway between NYC and Montreal)
