Milwaukee County Board committee approves resolution supporting driver’s licenses for all

The Milwaukee County Board’s Judiciary, Safety and General Services Committee on Thursday, March 7 passed a resolution that would allow full access to driver’s licenses regardless of someone’s immigration status or fines. It passed by a 3-2 vote.

While the resolution serves as a recommendation to endorse Governor Tony Evers’ budget proposal that would allow people in the country illegally to obtain driver’s licenses and identification cards, some county officials said they believe it could change people’s quality of life.
