Honorable Senator ______________:
Hello, my name is _____________ and I am one of your constituents. I am contacting you today to ask you to support Senate File 271, the Driver’s License for All bill. The Driver’s License for All bill would restore driver’s license access to all Minnesotans, regardless of immigration status, and create safer and more inclusive roads. Law enforcement officials statewide hail the bill as a big win for all Minnesotans in public safety, and I agree with them. Equal access to driver’s licenses means equal access to road skill testing, vision testing, and auto insurance, making driving safer for all Minnesotans. Please join Minnesota with forward-looking states Illinois, New Mexico, Utah, Washington, and most recently Colorado, and support the passage of Senate File 271, the Driver’s License for All bill.
Thank you for supporting the ability of all Minnesotans to work, attend school, and live their lives.
