California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill today that allows undocumented immigrants to obtain a California driver's license.  Brown joined Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck for a signing ceremony in front of Los Angeles City Hall. The state Assembly approved AB 60 on a 55-19 vote on the final day of the recent legislative session, allowing some 2 million people in California to get a driver's license.

The cards will carry notification that it is only an ID for driving -- the card does not establish eligibility for employment, voting or seeking public benefits.

As previously reported on the ImmigrationProf blog, Governore Brown has a number of other important immigration bills awaiting his signature.
