Central Oregon lawmakers voted against a bill that allows illegal immigrants to get a "driver's card" in Oregon. - but it  easily passed in the house on Tuesday.

 

Wednesday The governor will sign Senate Bill 833 into law during a special May Day celebration.

 

Before Tuesday’s House vote State Representative Mike McLane of Powell Butte urged a "no" vote.

 

“I don’t know about you colleagues but in my district the DMV is not the most popular agency in the state- quite a few complaints actually come to me about the DMV. I’m alittle unsettled giving such enormous discretion for implementation for such an important bill to the DMV.”

 

Those in favor of the bill say it will make the roads safer for everyone because more people will get car insurance and take the necessary driving tests.  

 

They also say that similar laws have been successful in other states.
