Editorial: NJ lawmakers stall on undocumented driver’s license bills (A4743 & S3229) exposes political depths of reelection despair

“If the legislation A4743 and S3229 passes, New Jersey would be the 13th state to expand access to drivers licenses, following the likes of California, Utah, Washington, and the District of Columbia which have successfully implemented similar expansions.

“This poll found a majority support for drivers license expansion among likely 2019 voters, which is remarkable given that the electorate in off-year elections tends to be whiter, older, and more conservative than the state as a whole. This is proof that this proposal transcends partisan ideology as voters recognize the value in having every driver on the road trained, tested, and insured,”said Erika J. Nava, Policy Analyst, New Jersey Policy Perspective.
