The Vermont Senate is expected to take up a bill that would allow immigrant farm workers to get driver’s licenses in Vermont. On Wednesday, the Senate is expected to take up the bill, which was approved last week by the Transportation Committee by a vote of 4 to 1. Vermont dairy farms employ an estimated 1,500 Mexican farm workers, many of whom are in this country illegally. They say they are isolated in rural areas and have to get rides from their employer or volunteers or sometimes pay for transportation to the grocery store or doctor.
