Senate panel OKs licenses for illegal immigrants
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Supporters of licensing illegal immigrants to drive say it would make Illinois roads safer with trained motorists required to carry insurance.

Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran told the committee unlicensed and uninsured illegal immigrants cause $64 million in damage claims each year — a cost covered by insured motorists' premiums.
