An odd bit of business on final day of the legislative session this week and still no explanation for it. Language to change the effective date of the controversial bill allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses made it into a budget implementation bill. The change from January 2015 to this July 1st was caught by a lawyer for House Republicans and Democratic leaders agreed to remove it.
Senate President Donald Williams says Democratic leaders didn't make the change and he doesn't know who did.
Transportation Committee ranking member, Brookfield Representative David Scribner says the change is one of the most reckless and irresponsible things he's seen in his 15 years in the legislature.
The late date was set so the DMV has time to prepare for the change.
