Subject:  Illinois goes nutso on drivers licenses Date:  1/8/2013  7:32 PM

The Illinois House on Tuesday approved legislation allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain temporary driver's licenses.

The bill was OK'd by a vote of 65-46 and now heads to Gov. Pat Quinn's desk for approval.

Under the plan, drivers would get three-year licenses, called Temporary Visitor Driver’s Licenses, and would be required to take a driver's education class and carry car insurance. Lawmakers believe there are as many as 250,000 undocumented immigrants on Illinois roads and that more than 40 percent of deadly Illinois crashes involve drivers who don't have a license.



the main reason they don't have insurance is they don't have the money, and won't get insurance even after you give them 'freebie' drivers licenses......

they'll buy one down the corner for $25 along with a phony insurance card....

Maybe you should just confiscate their cars when they are stopped at traffic stops, or when they don't have plates on the car? are pandering to future leb dem voters? got it.....

and these are the folks who aren't paying IL state income tax either since they work off the books....
