Comments

CASA, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

VACOLAO supports legislation that opens doors to immigrant communities who have a special commitment to making positive contributions to our society and economy.
Support - corrects existing inequity by giving all lawfully present Virginians the same access to driving privileges.

ACLU-VA Immigrants Rights, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

ACLU-VA supports expansion of driving privileges to all residents of the Commonwealth regardless of immigration or refugee status. Roads are safer when drivers have a means to acquire legal driving privileges. We should welcome newcomers and extend public services such as driving privileges, social services, and educational opportunities to all who call Virginia home.
