The measure did not pass into law. In any event, Palin’s DMV subsequently tightened the administrative regulations on drivers’ licenses, thereby giving rise to a lawsuit by some folks who found the new restrictions inconvenient.
The new restrictions were not, however, enough for at least some members of the legislature, who tried again recently to enact a ban into the statutory law: “Despite two unsuccessful pushes, [a new bill] addresses the rights of illegal immigrants in Alaska: to require applicants to show proof of residency before they can get a driver’s license.”
