The Assembly Republicans held a press conference just hours ago urging Democrat Majority members to block the Governor's plan, which would give state driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
Assembly Republicans are asking for a debate on the issue. They're urging for support and a vote to stop the governor. And they're hoping to pass legislation that would prevent the Governor from moving forward with the plan.
If they're unsuccessful, the license roll-out would happen in two phases. In December, driver's licenses would be issued to about 152,000 New Yorkers who at one point had a license. Then in April, the rest of the population would be offered the same option.
Coming up at News 8 Now at 6, we'll hear from Assembly Republican Leader Jim Tedisco from Albany and we'll tell you what Democrats have to say on the issue.
