Colorado House endorses immigrant driver license expansion
DENVER — A bill to allow more Colorado residents who are in the country illegally to apply for drivers licenses is one step from clearing the Legislature after a House vote on Wednesday. The bill would increase from three to 10 the number of Department of Motor Vehicles offices offering special drivers licenses to those residents. Colorado began issuing the licenses in 2014 under a program funded entirely by fees paid by applicants. More than 61,000 licenses have been issued since then.
