The Massachusetts Legislature recently took a historic step by overwhelmingly passing the Work and Family Mobility Act, a bill that would allow all qualified Massachusetts drivers to apply for a license, regardless of immigration status. Governor Baker quickly vetoed the bill. Now the Legislature must vote to override his veto for the bill to become law.
Call your state representative and tell them to vote YES on the Work and Family Mobility Act when it comes to the floor for a veto override this Wednesday, June 8th.
