Arnold e-mailed me backSubmitted by JUSTCOMEHOME on Fri, 10/10/2008 - 11:20
Governor Schwarzenegger answered my request to veto SB 60, which would give driver's licenses to illegals. ;
Thank you for writing to urge a veto of SB 60. I appreciate your active participation in the democratic process, and I value your suggestions on how government can better serve the people of California.
I am pleased to inform you that I vetoed this bill after extensive consideration and thorough deliberation of arguments from both supporters and opponents of this issue. This bill does not specify how the Department of Motor Vehicles would validate the identity of individuals who do not have documented proof that their presence in the United States is authorized under federal law. I have previously stated that the ability to verify documents used to establish an identity must include a way to determine whether an individual is who he or she purports to be. My veto message for this legislation may be found on the Official California Legislative Information website: www.leginfo.ca.gov.
Again, I appreciate hearing your opinion on legislation that affects the future of our great state. Taking the time to communicate your views and offer suggestions is essential to good citizenship and good government.
