AboutTell Your Legislators to Vote YES on A4743/S3229 Legislator Lookup
Let's Drive NJ brings together over eighty community, faith, labor, social service, and advocacy organizations to push to expand access to driver's licenses in the Garden State. Too often, otherwise qualified drivers face barriers to obtaining a license -- vulnerable populations like undocumented immigrants, survivors of violence, transgender individuals and senior citizens are particularly impacted. Fourteen states and Washington, D.C. have expanded access to drivers licenses to qualified drivers, regardless of immigration status. New Jersey is poised to join these states. Doing so would increase public safety, help the state’s economy and increase the well-being of all families – particularly the hundreds of thousands who will gain access to a driver's license. More information on this common-sense proposal here. Read the legislation here
We are calling on legislators to take action to pass the legislation before the end of this legislative session so that more families can drive safely and contribute to the local and state economies. Find and call your legislators here: letsdrivenj.org/call
Every day the legislation A4743/S3229 is delayed, New Jersey is losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenues and taxes that could be used to balance NJ’s budget. When fully implemented, New Jersey would see over 90 million annually from fees and taxes collected with new drivers on the road.
