Referencing earlier thread from today:
CA Senate Again Approves Drivers License for Illegals 21-15 (goes to the Governor now)
From the article:
The governor's office has consistently said Schwarzenegger does not want to take any action until the federal government finishes deciding its requirements for state licenses ... Congress gave states the option to create distinct driver's licenses for illegal immigrants under the Real ID Act passed in May.
In an attempt to head off Schwarzenegger's concern that California should wait until the federal government details the requirements of the Real ID Act, Cedillo amended his bill last week to incorporate such a delay.
