Bill to Allow State to Issue Driver’s Licenses without Photographs Meets Opposition
Posted: 20-Feb-2004 10:17PM CST

Prior to Sept. 11, 2001 the transportation cabinet allowed county clerks to issue driver’s licenses without photos in the event the licensee’s religion discourage allowing his or her photograph to be taken; however, the state has since stopped this practice due to concerns it might be abused by terrorists. State Representative Fred Nesler, D-Mayfield, submitted a bill for consideration during this years regular session that if approved would reinstate the practice; however, a number of members of the house transportation committee have expressed opposition to the bill.
