    Could the Governor's loose lips spring a man from prison? The National Latino Congreso held in Los Angeles last week may have laid out a blueprint for how Arnold Schwarzenegger could recoup some of his lost ground with Latino voters. The day before conference officials disinvited the Governor from giving a speech at the conference because of racially questionable comments, Congreso participants unanimously approved a resolution calling on Schwarzenegger to free a Latino prisoner imprisoned under California's three-strikes law for cheating on a Department of Motor Vehicles exam. The city of Richmond and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors have...

    Legislation to allow illegal immigrants in California apply for driver's licenses was resurrected Monday in a weakened version that's contingent on federal funding. Senate Bill 1162 by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, was approved by Democrats in the Assembly on a 42-34 vote, a week after Democrats derailed its precursor, fearing a voter backlash in November. The emotionally charged measure still requires confirmation by the state Senate, which passed an earlier version, SB 1160. It also faces a likely veto by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who vetoed similar legislation last year. Unlike SB 1160, the amended legislation does not require state...

    SACRAMENTO -- Sen. Gil Cedillo said Friday that he has not given up on his eighth attempt to enact legislation that would let illegal immigrants get driver's licenses, even though his latest bill is bottled up in committee with time running out on lawmakers' 2006 session. "There are a myriad of ways to do this," the Los Angeles Democrat said in an interview. "We're going to find one of them to do it." Cedillo has been trying for eight years to overturn 1993 legislation that prohibits the state from issuing licenses to drivers who cannot prove they're in the country...

    SACRAMENTO – Sen. Gil Cedillo's maneuvering to broaden the appeal of his ongoing campaign to grant undocumented immigrants the legal right to drive may cost him traditional allies. The Senate Transportation Committee yesterday approved his bill on a 7-3 vote amid the backdrop of recent massive immigrant rights rallies and a planned boycott of stores and jobs May 1. The bill, SB 1160, is designed to give illegal immigrants the opportunity to apply for a clearly distinguishable document that could only be used as a certificate to drive – not for identification. The legislation also includes provisions that would bring...

    Illegal immigrants seeking a California driver's license under new legislation would face tougher background checks than most U.S. citizens, including screening by federal anti-terrorism authorities and the required submission of fingerprints, bill sponsors said Saturday. The Immigrant Responsibility and Security Act, which lawmakers approved in the final hours of the legislative session Friday, would require background checks by the state Department of Justice, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Doctors, lawyers and teachers undergo similar scrutiny during licensing, said the bill's author, Sen. Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles). Criminal records would disqualify applicants for a license. "This would...

    Well guys, "One Bill Gil" Cedillo snuck this monstrosity in as an attachment to some bill the state senate just HAD to pass. (The official story, anyway.) John and Ken just announced that it passed 21 - 14 moments ago, despite an impassioned, intelligent plea against it by Tom McClintock. The bill now moves on the entire assembly, where it is also expected to pass. So it looks like Arnold will have a bill to either sign or veto after all. Once more into the breach.

    Last year, liberals who dominate the state Legislature passed a bill giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens. This bill was signed into law by then Gov. Gray Davis, who was facing a recall election. The public was outraged. Republican candidates for governor promised to roll back the illegal driver's license bill if one of them were to be elected governor. In the wake of the recall election, the new governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, made it clear that he intended to live up to his campaign pledge.

    Los Angeles Daily News ^ | July 05, 2004 | Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Thousand Oaks
    GOV. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made progress on several fronts in an effort to put California on the road to recovery. But there's a roadblock at the very beginning, and until it's removed, California's recovery cannot move forward. Illegal immigration, more than any other single factor, is crippling major segments of California's economy, from health care to higher education to jobs. That's why, regardless of the security concerns -- and there are many -- Schwarzenegger should not sign any bill granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. This is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue. Exit polls conducted during last year's recall...

    SACRAMENTO - Legislation that would allow an estimated 2 million illegal immigrants to get California driver's licenses was shelved temporarily Monday by a Senate committee, significantly reducing the amount of time to enact it this year. The measure by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, was placed on the Senate Appropriations Committee's suspense file, a standard procedure for bills projected to cost the state more than $150,000. The committee is tentatively scheduled to vote on suspense file bills Aug. 13, and the Legislature is scheduled to adjourn its 2004 session on Aug. 31.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - A bill allowing an estimated 2 million illegal immigrant drivers in California to get legal driver's licenses cleared a Senate committee Tuesday, which was the bill's first hurdle in the Legislature. The latest attempt to make illegal immigrants eligible for the licenses, the bill would require applicants who cannot prove legal residency in California to be fingerprinted, undergo background checks and get adult sponsors. Illegal immigrants would pay $146 for a license to cover extra costs of guaranteeing that licenses aren't used as a tool for terrorists to move freely in California.

    ESCONDIDO ---- Calling on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to make good on his promise to revisit the issue of granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, nearly 200 people marched Monday morning at Escondido's Grape Day Park. The governor led the repeal of a law last year that would have given illegal immigrants the opportunity to get driver's licenses, but he said that he would consider a new proposal that included tighter security measures. A spokesman for the governor declined to comment Monday. Early this month, state Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, submitted a new license bill, Senate Bill 1160. The specific...

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST SB 1160, as introduced, Cedillo. Highways: drivers. Existing law makes it unlawful for a person to drive a motor vehicle upon a highway unless that person holds a valid driver's license issued under the Vehicle Code, and provides proof of financial responsibility. This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact appropriate legislation that improves the safety of all California residents while operating motor vehicles upon our highways by ensuring that all drivers of motor vehicles are properly licensed, tested, and maintain proof of financial responsibility. The bill would declare that it takes effect...

    Dear Friends,   As I indicated in a previous email, the Democrats in the State Legislature are pushing for a new bill to give drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens – SB 1160.   What has been greatly disappointing to me is that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he supports this effort even after he worked with Republican State Senator Rico Oller to kill the original drivers’ license-for-illegal-aliens bill, SB 60.   Today the language for SB 1160 was introduced and it is apparent that this measure is going to be pushed through the State Legislature and on to Governor Schwarzenegger’s desk...

Petitions in support of a new bill were dropped off at the governor's office on Wednesday. Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, has pushed for similar laws several...

    Emboldened by President Bush's recent call for an overhaul of U.S. immigration policy, local immigrant groups and California legislators are again pushing for a bill that would allow undocumented workers to obtain driver's licenses. A coalition of activist groups delivered 32,000 signatures to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office Wednesday, supporting SB 1160, a terse bill that calls on the legislature to pass a law that would ensure all California drivers were licensed and have proof of insurance. "The signatures are there to demonstrate there is support for developing legislation to give licenses to all drivers ... including the undocumented," said Sister...
