Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants Repeal Question Will Likely Make The November Ballot

August 18, 2022

There will most likely be a veto referendum question on the November ballot in Massachusetts asking whether or not illegal immigrants should be eligible to obtain driver’s licenses.

Local town and city clerks have certified more than the required amount of signatures (40,120) for the question to make the ballot, according to Politico. However, the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s office still needs to certify signatures and the campaign is continuing to collect signatures, according to the campaign’s web site.

The Massachusetts Legislature passed H.4805 in June 2022, and enacted it by overriding Governor Charlie Baker’s veto of the bill. The bill provides illegal immigrants the chaince to obtain a driver’s license in the Commonwealth starting in July 2023. It passed 119-36 in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and 32-8 in the Massachusetts Senate. Thirteen Democrats in the state legislature opposed the bill:  eight in the House and five in the Senate.

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
