Government IDs will have to match travel tickets exactly

The Osama bin Laden killing has put many agencies on high alert and that means travelers should expect rules to be followed to the letter.

Travel security experts say the killing of Osama bin Laden makes security officials nervous and when they are nervous, consumers have to jump through more hoops.

Here's one place you are likely to get caught up -- the name on your airline ticket. New rules demand the name on the ticket match the name on your government issued I.D. exactly.

Up until now, the rules has been followed, but with a little bit of wiggle room; experts now say just assume that wiggle is now gone.
