One Bill Gil Cedillo brings back illegal aliens driver's licenses (January 2008 edition)

From this:
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.

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.
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.

'And, even Cedillo has admitted that three-quarters of Californians oppose his scheme.' Yeah, who cares about the opinion of the people you ostensibly represent. It's almost as if his loyalties lie elsewhere--can't imagine where.

Cedillo is my own state senator. I never thought things could get so grim in my home town and state.
