    So what are the essential differences between driving licence bills approved by MI house and senate? Does either bill allow driving on H4 visa (spouses of H1Bs)?

    "Now the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan Wednesday filed a lawsuit on behalf of six Michigan residents whom the federal government permits to live and work in the country, but are being denied driver's licenses."

    I was waiting for that...
    It's the only way to get these politicians to wake up.

    bibdaily.com reports that "Michigan DL legislative fix goes to Gov. for signature. Gov. Granholm expected to sign Friday."
    They give a link to the bill; I did not read all 60 pages but it looks like ALL people of Michigan who are in the country legally are eligible for MI DL. Cool!

    that is correct
    the iv-michigan chapter has been working closely with the MI legislators and at least one iv members is a plaintiff in the legislation- today they received communication from the MI house to the effect that the house version has prevailed in conference. this version will contain language that DL expires if legal status expires but doe not fox the expiry to visa dates. other problematic provisions have also been dropped.

    Michigan is not alone in this. Take a look at the Texas driver's license law. Aliens on H-2B visas are inelligible for driver's licenses because by definition, their I-94 is valid for a period of less than one year. So the U.S. government allows people to come work, but the State of Texas will not issue them a driver's license.
