As reported by the Legislative Gazette:

Proposed legislation would allow undocumented immigrants access to New York state driver's licenses. Sen. Jose Peralta, has submitted legislation he says would bring the undocumented into the economic mainstream and improve safety on New York roads.

"A driver's license will provide undocumented immigrants much more employment flexibility," said Peralta, D-Queens. "In moving out of the shadows and into the economic mainstream, they will be less isolated and less vulnerable to predators and their scams. This legislation will also help make all New Yorkers safer by allowing us to identify everyone who drives on our roads and ensure that they are properly credentialed, educated and operating registered, inspected and insured vehicles."
