The Irish International Immigrant Center, along with other members of the Safe Driving Coalition, a group of faith, immigrant, business and union leaders, has been leading the push for a Safe Driving Bill.
Last week, the Coalition met with the Chair of the Joint Transportation Committee and newly elected Chair of the Democratic party, Senator Tom McGee. The group expressed their support for the Safe Driving Bill which would enable all immigrants, including undocumented to obtain Massachusetts drivers licenses, making the state’s roads safer. The Senator hopes to schedule a hearing in mid or late November and encouraged the Coalition to bring a strong turnout of supporters at the hearing.
We urge you to get involved! This is a public hearing and it is very important to have the support of the Irish community for this bill to pass. Here’s your chance to have your voice heard. Call Johanne at 617.542-7654 Ext. 13 to learn more about the bill and the upcoming hearing.
