Inslee May Allow CIA To Get Fake Wash. ID Cards

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington Gov. Jay Inslee may continue allowing the Central Intelligence Agency to get fake ID cards from the state.
    
A spokeswoman for Inslee said Friday he broadly interprets a proposed law that gives undercover officers access to phony driver's licenses. The measure limits the ID card to officers engaged in "law enforcement activities." While the CIA is not a law enforcement agency, Inslee spokeswoman Jaime Smith says the governor broadly interprets the meaning of "law enforcement activities" to include the CIA.
    
That seems to run counter to the interpretation of lawmakers earlier this week. Democratic Rep. Judy Clibborn had initially said the measure would not allow the CIA to get the ID cards.
    
The fake ID program has been operating without legislative approval for years. The Kitsap Sun recently reported that the CIA has been utilizing the program more than any federal, state or local agency.
