Dannel Malloy, JD, Governor of Connecticut, in a statement quoted in the May 31, 2013 article, "Connecticut to Allow Undocumented Immigrants to Apply for Driving Licenses," available at, stated:

“This bill is first and foremost about public safety. It’s about knowing who is driving on our roads, and doing everything we can to make sure those drivers are safe and that they’re operating registered, insured vehicles. There’s a reason these measures have been supported by local police and city leaders, and that other states are taking similar common-sense steps. They’re changes that benefit everyone taking a car out onto our roads and highways.”
