(Supervisors support SB 1213)…The bill was authored by State Senator Ben Hueso.
This is the second time Hueso has submitted the bill. Senate Bill 1213 calls for an enhanced driver’s license. The enhancement would serve to provide information approved by Customs and Immigration. It would allow those with the enhanced driver’s license to take advantage of shorter lines coming across the International Border, with reduced waiting times coming back into the United States. Last year the bill did not make it out of committee. The County Board of Supervisors supported the bill the first time, and said Tuesday they would renew that letter of support. County Intergovernmental Liaison Gary Wyatt said he would testify before the senate committee discussing the bill next week.
