Advocates in Idaho are hoping to pass a law that would allow undocumented people to get drivers authorization. This would allow immigrants who do not have legal status to still be able to get right with the system as far as getting a license and having insurance and being safe on the road.

Advocates in Idaho have the right idea by passing measures that will help the lives of immigrants in the state, while the federal government continues to debate the prospects of immigration reform.

Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon, in February introduced S.B. 1132, which aimed to create a driver authorization card; despite drawing strong support from an array of Idaho interests, ranging from agriculture and business groups to the Roman Catholic Diocese, the bill died in committee.
