CNN reports that undocumented immigrants will soon have the opportunity to hold driver’s licenses in NYS after the Governor and State Senate approved the Green Light Bill.

The bill, which was originally sponsored by Bronx State Senator Luis Sepulveda, was passed with a 33 to 29 vote on Monday, June 17, says CNN.

In a statement, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. said he supported the legislature’s action, saying is it “an unqualified victory for the people of this state. Not only will this legislation help make our roads safer, it will also help integrate immigrant New Yorkers more strongly within their communities while also providing them with increased economic opportunities.”

New York is the 13th state to give driver’s licenses to the undocumented, and under safeguards in the bill they are protected from federal authorities searching them up through the DMV, reports CBS NEWS.
