Confirmed victory

Please do not include SB-404 in the calendar for vote and don't include the language of SB-404 in any other bills

This petition made change with 82 supporters!


On February 21st GOP-Leadership brought to the GA-Senate the hateful SB-404. This bill intends to prohibit the ability to renew and obtain a GA driver's license for persons that have Deferred Action status, including those under U-Visas.

That led our community to take action. This past Monday we were present at the Capitol demanding that the committee to which SB-404 was assigned, the Senate Non-Civil Judiciary Committee, not pass SB-404. Students, friends, and allies were present at the capitol monitoring and urging lawmakers to not pass this bill. Meanwhile in a separate meeting, members of the Senate Non-Civil Judiciary Committee secretly approved the bill, which is in violation of Senate rules. 

The news of the approval spread quickly, and through the presence of advocates at the Capitol and with the support and action of the community through calls to the chair of the Senate Rules Committee, the bill was not included in the calendar for vote for this Monday, March 3. 

However it is too soon to declare victory. Monday, March 3, is Crossover Day and there is a possibility that the language of the bill could be included in another bill as an amendment. It is very important for us to be vigilant and not let this happen. 

 

We are calling the community to take Action. We want from you two things. First, sign this petition directed to Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle asking to not bring this bill to the Senate for vote and do not let any other bill with the hateful message of SB-404 pass to the Senate for vote. Second, we need your presence at the Capitol. We will be there all day long to make sure students, victims of crime, and victims of domestic violence are not banned from getting Georgia Driver’s Licenses.
