Debate Over Driver's License For Illegals In Oregon

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon legislators have begun hearing public testimony on a proposal that would grant short-term driver's licenses to people who live in the country illegally. The Senate Business and Transportation Committee drew a large crowd yesterday to testify on Senate Bill 833. Under the bill, immigrants who have lived in Oregon for at least a year and meet other requirements would be eligible for four-year driver's licenses without proving U.S. citizenship. The license could not be used to vote, board a plane or purchase a firearm. Supporters have said the proposal would help make Oregon roads safer.
