State Assembly passes Green Light Bill

Local News

NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — The State Assembly has passed legislation permitting driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. The measure passed on a vote of 86 to 47 on Wednesday.

But Republican lawmakers say it could lead to immigrants voting illegally.

No vote has been scheduled in the Senate and with lawmakers set to adjourn for the year next week, time may be running out.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has said he would sign the measure if it passes.

Twelve states already permit driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.
