GOP support helps move immigrant driver's licenses

A friend of mine might be interested in this AP report. This is has been big news in Illinois politics.
Illinois legislative Republican leaders' support of allowing illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses should help move the issue.

Advocates expect the Senate to take up the matter on the floor Tuesday.

House Minority Leader Tom Cross of Oswego and Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno announced at a morning Capitol news conference that they'll back the proposal.

The plan awaiting a Senate floor vote would allow the 250,000 illegal immigrants who are already driving the chance to be tested, licensed and buy insurance.
Well, I suppose they should be licensed and then subject to the rules of the road yes. They're already out there driving, but should we encourage illegals to follow the legal process for immigrants?

Tough call but right now, Illinois is moving forward with allowing illegal immigrants the opportunity to get driver's licenses.
