NEW DRIVER'S LICENSE
(2007-12-06)
(wgvu) - N MICHIGAN WOULD GET A NEW DRIVER'S LICENSE
AND STATE IDENTIFICATION CARD UNDER A PLAN ANNOUNCED BY SECRETARY
OF STATE TERRI LYNN LAND.
ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE MICHIGAN RESIDENTS AND LEGALLY IN THE U.S.
WOULD BE ABLE TO GET THE NEW STANDARD LICENSE.
MICHIGAN NOW IS ONE OF A HANDFUL OF STATES WHERE ILLEGAL
IMMIGRANTS CAN GET DRIVER'S LICENSES.
THE NEW STANDARD LICENSE HAS INCREASED SECURITY FEATURES AND
COULD BE USED BY RESIDENTS TO GET ON BOARD AIRPLANES IN THE U.S.
WHEN THE FEDERAL REAL ID ACT TAKES EFFECT.
WITHOUT A REDESIGNED ID CARD AND LICENSE, RESIDENTS WOULD NEED A
PASSPORT TO GET ON A DOMESTIC FLIGHT WHEN THE FEDERAL LAW TAKES
EFFECT.
