Why would someone who couldn’t be bothered with the legal process even care about the legal status of their driving? Perhaps because unlike our immigration laws, our traffic laws tend to be enforced.

Sponsored by 27 House Democrats and 2 Republicans, House Bill 279 is currently pending in the House Transportation Committee. The bill would let people without a Social Security number, including those living in the United States illegally, obtain a driver’s license or a learner’s permit. “In today’s fast-paced world, a driver’s license is essential to earn a living, travel safely, and live a dignified existence,” the sponsors wrote in a January memo. The bill amends current state law to allow people without a Social Security number to apply for a driver’s license or learner’s permit using such alternatives as a federal taxpayer identification number, foreign passport, consular identification document, or birth certificate.Pennsylvania Lawmakers Introduce Bill To Allow Drivers’ Licenses For Illegal Aliens | ZeroHedge
