Legislature: Let the Homeless Drive Legally

The Hawaii House of Representatives has now approved a Senate bill that would eliminate a major legal roadblock, literally, for the homeless.

SB273, SD2, HD2 addresses a a major problem for those who are homeless but otherwise eligible to drive: they needed to supply a address to the driver’s license examiner.   The bill requires the examiner to  “to accept a sworn statement from a victim services organization, an attorney, a member of the clergy, correctional institution staff, a medical or health professional, or a verification letter from a homeless service provider as documentary evidence of a homeless person’s address.  The bill would also” waive all fees for homeless individuals” and would set up a “working group to enable homeless individuals in the State to obtain necessary documentary evidence.”
