Florida ports ID badge; state, federal or both?

It has been 6 years struggle already for Florida ports to be able to issue photo ID badges and Florida Department of Law Enforcement to do background checks on badge applicants. As of now in many ports federal id badge is insuficient to enter and drivers need to get a state badge as well. Federal badge costs $132 and lasts 5 years while state badges can cost $25-85 plus $10-$35 annually to renew. Some commentators say the struggle is about money; security screening is a fairly expensive procedure and significant contribution to the state or federal budget.
