Hearing on tighter license rules draws rally

SALEM, Ore. (AP) Representatives ranging from farm worker advocates to the Oregon chapter of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps were at the Oregon Capitol Friday to support or oppose stiffer rules for driver's licenses for undocumented residents.

"Drug dealers get protection in Oregon," Ted Campbell, head of the Oregon Minutemen said.

But Kevin Courtney, 10, worried what tighter rules might do to families.

"I am in fifth grade and I heard all my classmates saying their parents are very worried about what is happening with their driving licenses and probably they won't have a way to go to work and they won't have enough money to buy food," he told a hearing of the joint House and Senate transportation committees.

They were among more than 150 people who signed up to testify on draft legislation. Another hearing is expected before the Legislature meets in a short session in February.

Nearly 2,000 others showed up to listen or rally on the Capitol steps. Most opposed the stricter rules.
