Proposed rule could limit driver's license phone calls

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - Illinois licensing officials are pushing for a call limit to be added to the Secretary of State's office's appointment system, as businesses are flooding the office with requests for appointments for special immigrant driver's licenses.

If adopted, the rule would limit the number of calls from a computer address or individual to three each day.  The new rule could be unpopular for some businesses, who promise to speed up the process for a fee by using automated dialing machines.

Approximately 53,000 immigrants living in the United States illegally have received the special driver's licenses, which were made possible by a new Illinois law.  The licenses cost $30, can only be used for driving, and have a purple border instead of red.
