A bill that could allow undocumented immigrants to get a driver’s license has significant support in the Oregon Legislature. More than 40 lawmakers have signed on to the bill.
If passed, House Bill 2015 – or the Equal Access to Roads Act – would eliminate the requirement for people to prove they’re in the county legally before they’re issued a driver’s license.
Immigrant’s rights groups say that people who are in the country illegally should have the same rights to go to their jobs.
This would not apply to commercial licenses.
