Oregon sheriffs oppose driver-license measure
Question of the Day
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A group of Oregon sheriffs is opposing a move to grant driving privileges for people who can’t prove they’re legally in the United States.
Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergin said Thursday that 28 of 36 sheriffs urge a no vote to overturn a law the Legislature passed.
The sheriffs were neutral when the Legislature voted.
Bergin says the state risks issuing driving cards to people using them for false identities.
He wouldn’t name the 28 sheriffs.
The sheriffs’ decision complicates efforts by proponents of the law. They also say they’re motivated by public safety concerns.
The law’s proponents say people will drive whether they can get a license or not, so it’s safer to have them take a driving test. They say the law requires driving applicants to prove their identities.
