Lawmaker Wants To Ease Driver’s License Rules

Tim Hearden, Record Searchlight (Redding, Cal.), Feb. 5

Hollywood stars’ powers of persuasion are apparently negligible in the north state when it comes to the issue of providing driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.

A Los Angeles lawmaker has unveiled a bill that would remove American citizenship as a requirement to drive in California. The bill by state Sen. Gil Cedillo is similar to one that was vetoed last fall by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This time Cedillo has lined up more than 30 actors, writers and musicians to promote the legislation. Martin Sheen, Danny Glover, Diane Keaton, Carlos Santana and “Million Dollar Baby” writer and producer Paul Haggis are among the supporters.

But the glitz and glamour has had little effect on shoppers interviewed Friday in front of two Redding stores.

“It’s not their (celebrities’) jobs that are being taken,” Redding homemaker Kathy Mankin, 40, said in front of Winco Foods.
