Border Security-Driver's Licenses
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Jennifer Granholm has signed
legislation to create optional Michigan driver's licenses designed
to make it easier to cross the nation's borders.
The legislation is aimed at meeting tougher identification rules
required by the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.
The optional driver's licenses and ID cards are enhanced to meet
passport requirements. The licenses will be available only for
Michigan residents who also are U.S. citizens.
Those who choose not to get an enhanced license would receive a
standard license.
Supporters say the IDs will help keep commerce flowing smoothly
between Michigan and Canada.
Granholm announced signing the legislation Thursday.
