SACRAMENTO – California Latino members of the California State Senate today are spearheading the passage of AB 60 (Alejo). The bill aims to provide undocumented residents in California with a valid driver’s license.
Since 2001, the Legislature has sought to allow the issuance of driver’s licenses to the undocumented immigrant community. This year, AB 60 advanced through the legislative process with a broad coalition of support including advocacy groups, labor and law enforcement. However, recent amendments stalled the passage of this bill.
