SB 60 on Children Obtaining Driver Licenses Unanimously Passes Committee

On January 23 the Senate Committee on Children, Families and Elder Affairs met to discuss Senate Bill 60. They heard testimony from advocates and former foster youth from Youth SHINE. The bill makes the “Keys to Independence” pilot project permanent — paving the way for foster children to get their learner permits and driver's licenses. The bill was unanimously passed out of committee. Keys to Independence is a statewide program to help youth ages 15-21 in licensed foster care obtain their driver's license and help with associated costs of driving.
