Washington Senate Votes Down Driver's License Ban for Undocumented Immigrants

A bill restricting access to driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants and to stop identification fraud was voted down Monday in Washington's state senate. The Republican backed motion to bring a vote on the bill resulted in a defeat, dealing a major blow to proponents of the measure.

In a procedural motion, Republicans asked the Senate to consider the bill, which had not been brought to the floor by Democrats, who hold the majority and control over which bills get a vote.
