This bill gives COFA residents full term Driver’s Licenses.
As a result of the Real ID Act of 2005 many states, including Oregon started limiting COFA residents to one year Driver’s cards, making it difficult for them to get bank accounts, loans, apartments, an even jobs. Potential employers were confused about their legal status. HB 2517 sponsored by CANN made life a little easier for Oregon’s COFA residents. The bill passed unanimously.
