Much has been written (and here and here) about the amnesty bill kicking around the California Legislature that would reduce the amount California motorist have to pay to reinstate their driver’s licenses following an unpaid traffic ticket. Apparently the amnesty provisions have been incorporated into the budget bill that Governor Brown is expected to sign in the coming days. If passed, it will go into effect October 1, 2015.
The Illinois Secretary of State (who licenses drivers in Illinois) will begin scheduling appointments to license undocumented drivers November 12. California Governor Brown signed a similar bill into law October 3.
