Cyclone Conservatives: Iowa GOP Legislators: Re-Introduce Illegal Immigrant Driver's License Bill

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

After the uproar over the controversial and extremely bureaucratic
illegal immigrant driver's license program being pushed by unpopular
Democratic New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and after Senator Hillary
Clinton relayed to a national audience on Tuesday night that she is
supportive of it, I wrote in a post yesterday that I thought it would
be great if an enterprising legislator here in Iowa would craft some
legislation that would ban illegal immigrants from gaining such a
privilege here in Iowa. Luckily for us here in Iowa, we've got a whole
lot (though not enough) of good legislators already on the task.
Yesterday, while doing a little research on which Democratic senators
cast no votes against arming officers at the three public universities
here in Iowa, I came across an interesting piece of legislation that
was offered last spring but didn't move anywhere in the Democratically
controlled Iowa Senate.
