TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott is vetoing a bill that would have allowed some young immigrants who are living in the U.S. illegally to apply for a temporary driver's license in the state.
The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a bill that said that young immigrants allowed to remain in the country under an Obama administration "deferred action" policy could use federal documents to receive a temporary driver's license for at least one year.
In a veto message, Scott questioned the legality of the federal policy announced last June.
The Republican governor notes the policy has not been approved by Congress or as a federal rule. He says the administration order could not be used to justify letting someone have a temporary license.
The bill was passed overwhelmingly.
