Quijano Will Reintroduce Bill to Establish Driver's License for NJ Residents who are Undocumented

Assemblywoman said measure would make roads safer by ensuring cars are registered & insured: looks forward to working with Governor-elect Phil Murphy and advocates on this public safety issue
Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) today announced she will reintroduce her New Jersey Safe and Responsible Drivers Act bill, which would provide driver's licenses for New Jersey residents who cannot prove lawful presence in the United States.

Quijano said the bill language will be tweaked, but the end goal will be the same.

"The purpose of this bill is to enhance road safety by ensuring that all drivers are properly tested and licensed, and are driving vehicles that are registered and insured," said Quijano.

Quijano said she has been working with advocates, and will meet with members of Governor-elect Phil Murphy's transition team to craft a bill that addresses the needs and concerns of all involved. Quijano's original proposal, which is modeled on a California law that was approved by federal officials, will be the foundation for the final bill sent to Governor-elect Murphy's desk.
