Nearly 1000 New Jersey Leaders and Organizations Support Allowing More Residents To Access A Driver’s License 


As the bill to expand access to driver’s licenses heads to a final vote on the Senate and Assembly floors, Let’s Drive NJ campaign releases the full list of supporters


NEW JERSEY (Monday, December 16th, 2019) Ahead of the final votes on legislation A4743/S3229 that would expand access to driver’s license to more residents regardless of immigration status in New Jersey, the Let’s Drive NJ campaign released its full list of supporters.


The list of supporters spans from legislators sponsoring the legislation to mayors, public safety officials, faith leaders, businesses, young immigrant leaders, and community and nonprofit organizations that endorse the campaign.


The Let’s Drive NJ campaign has led the campaign since January 2018. After two years of rigorous campaigning with over 30 rallies, marches, and protests, and meeting with legislators to ensure the legislation would enhance mobility, includes all residents, and protects privacy, the legislation is coming to a historic floor vote in New Jersey.


If passed, New Jersey will become the 15th state to expand access to driver’s licenses to all following New York and Oregon who passed similar legislation in Summer 2019. See the updated map of states that have expanded access to driving from NILC.


See the full list of supporters below.
