Yesterday, the MA Joint Transportation Committee heard testimony on the MA ID Bill – S. 2043/H. 3066 – to make it possible to obtain a MA ID with a fee waiver and with alternative residency requirements so a permanent address is not necessary. Legal identification is critical to obtaining employment, education, financial accounts and of course stable housing. The Network submitted written testimony in support of this bill.
