MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama House has approved the first change to the state's tough new immigration law.
The House voted 92-0 to pass a bill that allows military identification cards to be used when obtaining car tags and conducting other business with the state. The new immigration law, approved by the Legislature last session, requires the showing of proof of citizenship or legal residency to buy a car tag or conduct other official business with local or state government.
The sponsor, Republican Rep. Steve Clouse of Ozark, said allowing the use of military identification is a major issue in his district, because of the Fort Rucker Army base.
House Majority Leader Rep. Micky Hammon, House sponsor of immigration legislation, said Clouse's bill would be included in legislation making immigration law changes.
