Driver's License Debate

The House begins debate today on H4826, the proposed law we mentioned last week which would increase the minimum age to receive a driver's license from 16-1/2 to 17-1/2. The bill has already been approved by the House Ways and Means Committee. Proposed amendments are available on the legislature's site (all 101 pages of them!). To contact your legislator to express your views on this bill, see Senators and Representatives by City and Town. If you would like to attend a session in person, see Lawmaking in Massachusetts for information.
