The fight over driver's licenses for the "undocumented" in New York seems to be heating up. The state Senate has passed a bill requiring Social Security numbers on applications for licenses. Many doubt that the (Democrat-controlled) state Assembly will support this bill. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is saying some positive things about Spitzer's plan to grant licenses to the "undocumented." And some NY county clerks say they'll report "undocumented" applicants for licenses to the authorities.
UPDATE: Homeland Security and Spitzer seem to have negotiated a "deal" on licensing standards, leading to three types of licenses: "enhanced," REAL-ID compliant, and a type for the "undocumented."
