SB 60 Passes Senate in CA

ACLU claims Governor Schwazenegger will Veto


Sacramento, CA -   SB 60, the California Real ID Act introduced for the 3rd consecutive time in January as identical legislation from previous sessions passed the Senate: 24 in favor, 15 opposed. The legislation has been vigorously opposed by ALIPAC, immigration and civil liberties groups in 2005, 2007 and now.     Legislations like SB 60 continue to move forward upon urges by DHS that security benchmarks must be met despite efforts towards a federal repeal of the Real ID Act of 2005.  

The repeal of the Real ID Act, supported by the Obama Administration, has made concessions for official federal purposes ascribed to State licenses by giving the nod to the PASS Act containing repeal language introduced Monday.
