Granholm signs bill to create optional driver’s licenses

LANSING, March 13, 2008 (AP): Governor Jennifer Granholm has signed legislation to create optional Michigan driver's licenses designed to make it easier to cross the nation's borders.

The legislation is aimed at meeting tougher identification rules required by the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.

The optional driver's licenses and ID cards are enhanced to meet passport requirements. The licenses will be available only for Michigan residents who also are U.S. citizens.

Those who choose not to get an enhanced license would receive a standard license.

Supporters say the IDs will help keep commerce flowing smoothly between Michigan and Canada.
