Wednesday, February 16: Utah's Legislation for Driver's Licenses and ID Cards
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – A Utah State Senate audit has indicated that as many as 58,000 driver's licenses have been issued to undocumented aliens. Four House bills and one Senate bills seek to limit access of licenses. Opponents argue that the proposed solutions could lead to, among other problems, an increase in the number of uninsured drivers and differential treatment of minorities. RadioWest looks at the bills and at the arguments surrounding them.
