Gov. Walz Signs “Driver’s Licenses For All” Bill
(St. Paul, MN) — Soon immigration status won’t matter when it comes to getting a driver’s license or ID in Minnesota. Governor Tim Walz signed the so-called “Driver’s Licenses For All” bill into law. It allows people to get a driver’s license or state ID card without showing proof of citizenship. The law is expected to impact more than 80-thousand residents statewide when it goes into effect on October 1st. Eighteen other states and Washington D.C. have similar laws in place.
