Driving for sense in New Jersey?

N.J. May Consider Driving Privileges for Immigrants

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A panel advising Governor Jon Corzine on immigrant issues is considering recommending the state allow undocumented immigrants "driver privilege cards'' and in-state college tuition rates.

Two Hispanic leaders have told the Record of Bergen County that the state's public advocate, Ron Chen, told them the measures would be included in a panel's report to Corzine.

But a spokeswoman for Chen told the newspaper that it hasn't been decided what would be included in the report.

The "driver privilege cards'' and in-state tuition would need legislative approval before becoming law. Groups that support tighter immigration control have said they'd oppose the measures.

Corzine assembled a panel on immigrant rights with the idea of passing comprehensive immigration reform.

Will he also increase the penalties for driving without insurance? Because that is the real concern - illegal aliens who kill with their cars, then flee the scene. He needs to do something about the insurance requirement.
