Immigrants cheer signing of driving bill

SALEM, Ore. — Gov. John Kitzhaber has signed a bill that will let people living in Oregon without documentation obtain driver's licenses and he was cheered on by a large crowd of immigrants

Kitzhaber signed the bill Wednesday on a table set up on the Capitol steps.

The signing coincided with a rally at the Capitol in support of immigrant rights.

Among the many signs at the rally was one that read, "thank you, now I can drive my kids to school."
