So my bill on drivers license is scheduled for tomorrow- it is trying to repeal the automatic suspension of the drivers license for failure to pay. I am fighting for them to keep their drivers license, not a restricted license. In 5 years -21,233 licenses have been suspended, and only 7,163 drivers licenses have been reinstated.
Of course- the child support division- claims – I am taking away their incentive to make people PAY.. It is BULL CRAP and they put a 17million dollar fiscal note on my bill. We are doing all of these activities to knock down barriers to work and build families, yet we think it is appropriate to suspend a dirvers license to make someone pay childs support. It is counter-intuitive.
