Democratic Minnesota House lawmakers on Thursday introduced a plan to allow undocumented Minnesota residents — those in the country illegally — to get drivers licenses.
But it wasn’t just Democrats.
Business leaders, clergy, some in the law enforcement community, and at least one Republican lawmaker stood inside the Capitol Thursday to espouse the idea.
Gov. Tim Walz, a Democrat, supports it as well, and its passage looks promising in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor-controlled House.
But the leader of the Republican-controlled Senate said he doesn’t think it’ll happen.
