Massachusetts House Overrides Charlie Baker On Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants

June 8, 2022

Illegal immigrants are a step closer to being eligible for driver’s licenses in Massachusetts.

Although Governor Charlie Baker recently vetoed a bill (H.4805) that would make illegal immigrants eligible for driver’s licenses in the Commonwealth, the Massachusetts House of Representatives voted 119-36 to override Baker’s veto on Wednesday, June 8. That’s about 77 percent of the members.

It takes at least a two-thirds vote in each chamber to override a governor’s veto.

The Massachusetts Senate is also likely to override Baker’s veto, on Thursday, June 9, according to State House News Service; the Senate voted 32-8 to provide driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants last month. If the state Senate override lbs Baker’s veto, the bill will become law despite opposition from all Republicans and some Democrats.
