Senate plans to tackle driver's license loophole
(2008-01-30)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State lawmakers plan to begin fixing what
some consider unintended consequences of Michigan's reinterpreted
driver's license laws.
A Senate committee will tackle the issue Thursday.
People who are here legally but not permanent residents haven't
been able to get new state driver's licenses since last week.
That's due to rules implemented by Secretary of State Terri Lynn
Land requiring more documentation to get driver's licenses for
first-time applicants. Her decision was based on a recent opinion
from Attorney General Mike Cox.
Land and others say they would like for those here legally and
temporarily to be able to get licenses.
Bills that would fix the problem are in the Legislature.
