Saying Friday's release of final regulations in the U.S. REAL ID Act clears the way, a Los Angeles Democrat said he will move ahead with a bill that would let illegal immigrants obtain driver's licenses.Unlike Gray Davis did shortly before being recalled, Arnie has vetoed past attempts, and, in addition to the security standards, a spokeswoman appears to be using another objection as a dodge: waiting for "comprehensive immigration reform". And, the California DMV has its own objections to Real ID. And, even Cedillo has admitted that three-quarters of Californians oppose his scheme.
State Sen. Gil Cedillo has previously proposed such legislation, but it has been vetoed repeatedly by Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has noted that federal officials have not yet adopted security standards to make licenses more tamper-proof.
Cedillo plans to use his bill, SB 60 - which has been parked on the Assembly floor since last year - to relaunch his effort.
