Happy Fall! It’s officially the season of changing colors, one of my favorite times of the year.
Each year, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources compiles a “fall color finder” so you can track the best times and spots to catch the peak colors in our area or anywhere across the state. It’s a fun way to enjoy the season and plan your next outdoor adventure before the snow flies.
Beginning October 1st, more of our neighbors will be able to earn a driver’s license regardless of immigration status as a result of legislation we passed early this year. This law reverses the short-sighted 2003 law prohibiting those without U.S. citizenship status from obtaining a driver’s license in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Department of Driver Vehicle Services has a wide variety of information on its website, including step-by-step guides in multiple languages outlining what is needed to take the written test and behind-the-wheel test, and how to schedule those appointments. Bottom line: getting a driver’s license is a privilege, and requires the same rules everyone must abide by to prove they can legally drive. Minnesota statute also requires ALL drivers to be insured. Please don’t hesitate to contact my office if you have questions or need assistance.
