    SACRAMENTO -- Last year's most controversial bill -- a measure to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants -- has returned to the Legislature, and its author said Wednesday he fully expects it will incite a flood of opposition on conservative talk radio. And state Sen. Gilbert Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, has reason to worry, says a Sacramento-area radio personality. "I think he's right," said Eric Hogue, a drive-time talk-show host who predicts strong opposition from his listeners. Cedillo said he's willing to meet his critics halfway. He's negotiating with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and expects to enact a compromise law that will...

    California lawmakers are moving quickly to overturn a law that allows illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses. Last Monday, the state Senate repealed the measure on a unanimous 33-0 vote after just four minutes of debate and with the blessings of the bill's original author. The measure unanimously passed an Assembly committee Tuesday, and the full Assembly is expected to vote on the measure Monday and revoke the law just four weeks before it was scheduled to take effect. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called the special legislative session to address the law last week after he was sworn into office. The...

    Thanks to the same out-of-touch Democrats that Golden State voters continue to reelect year after year, the California State legislature has passed a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to obtain California driver’s licenses. Now, it sits on the Governor’s desk—where he can sign it into law, veto it outright, or do nothing at all and allow it to become a full-fledged statute on its own. I have a suggestion—while they’re at it, perhaps these same elected officials in Sacramento can vote to erect signs at state borders and airports that say: “Welcome, criminals and terrorists!” Senate Bill 60 author...
