Rick Scott Vetoed a ‘Hugely Popular’ Immigrant Driver License Bill

From The Tampa Bay Times, 06/04/2013, and The Miami Herald, 06/06/2013:

Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday vetoed a bill that would have allowed children of illegal immigrants to get temporary Florida driver’s licenses, a decision that may bolster his standing among immigration hard-liners but could hurt him among Hispanic voters.

The vetoed measure, informally known to supporters as the “Dream Act Driver License” law, passed the Legislature by a nearly unanimous vote.
