Random UA Email about Real ID & EWR

I received a random UA email today that began with lounge news and then went into Real ID and that there were no exceptions. It then linked to this page:

https://www.dhs.gov/real-id?utm_medi..._date=20181029

That shows all states as either being in compliance or having an extention??

Security newsImportant information about U.S. IDs​​​. U.S. driver's licenses or state IDs that are not in compliance with the REAL ID Act and have not been granted an extension cannot be used as identification when flying within the U.S. Please visit the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s website to check if your state is compliant.TSA Pre✓® program changes​​. TSA has significantly reduced access to TSA Pre✓® expedited screening for non-enrolled travelers. TSA strongly recommends that you enroll in a DHS Trusted Traveler program such as TSA Pre✓®, Global Entry, NEXUS or SENTRI to obtain access to expedited airport security screening.

Every year when I pay for the registration of my car, I get a reminder from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles about the need to make sure that my driver's license is in compliance with the REAL ID Act. However, I feel that they should know that my ID qualifies since I moved to this state two years ago and then they already had the driver's licenses that qualify.

As there are multi-threads on the status and issues of Real ID requirements in Practical Travel Safety and Security Issues forum, will move this post there.

Travelers with Non-Compliant ID's from Real ID Compliant States
Acceptable Identification for Domestic Travel?
REAL ID - how will travelers from non-compliant states w/o passports be affected?
