The New Hampshire House voted to pass a bill forbidding the state from complying with the federal RealID Act, which the legistlation termed "repugnant," reports the Associated Press.

This is the second time New Hampshire, one of two states picked to pilot the Real ID program, has proposed to reject the bill. The bill failed in the Senate, but Lynch's spokesman said yesterday that Gov. John Lynch will sign it this time.

When he signs, New Hampshire will join Maine, Montana and Washington state in acting out against RealID. Legislation or resolutions have been introduced in 26 states.
