Join a phone bank to take collective action to pass An Act Relative to Work and Family Mobility H.3012 (Farley-Bouvier and Barber) and S.2061 (Crighton) This bill would enable all qualified state residents to apply for a standard Massachusettsdriver’s license, regardless of immigration status, while keeping our Commonwealth in fullcompliance with REAL ID requirements.
Last week we thought that the Labor Day weekend would be a quiet weekend, however, it turned out that in addition to the Labor Day March and Rally on Monday, the Joint Committee on Transportation scheduled the hearing for the Work and Family Mobility Act (H.3012 and S.2061) on Wednesday, September 4. The coalition on very short notice was able to mobilize more than 800 supporters who packed the hearing room from across Massachusetts to testify and show solidarity and support for the bill.
