Immigrant Driving Bill Held for Revision

TRENTON (AP) — The sponsor of a bill granting driving privileges to some New Jersey residents living in the United States illegally says the proposal needs more work.

Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D) pulled the proposal from Thursday’s Assembly’s Transportation Committee agenda.

Gusciora says the bill will be fine-tuned before a hearing this summer.

Gusciora wants anyone who is eligible for deferred deportation status and a work permit to be able to acquire a driver’s license from the state.

Eligible applicants are up to 30 years old and have been in the United States at least five years. They can’t have a criminal record and must have graduated from a U.S. high school or be a veteran.

Immigrants in the U.S. illegally are not currently eligible for driver’s licenses in New Jersey.
