The Democrat-controlled Minnesota House passed it Friday, but a bill allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain a Minnesota drivers license has little chance of passing the Republican-controlled Senate:
House Democratic Majority Leader Ryan Winkler says it’s for that reason they will include the measure in budget bills:
“While we’re continuing to work with senators on this issue, we have not yet seen the bill move forward (in the MN Senate) and so we are trying to bring it all the way to the end at the end of the session, if that’s what it takes.”
But are House Democrats prepared to hold up passing state budget bills unless Republicans agree to drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants?
“We are not going to issue any ultimatums on any issue going into the end of this session, period.”
