In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests.

“I strongly support state legislation that will allow every Chicagoan, regardless of legal status, to enjoy the rights and responsibilities that come with a driver’s license. I am encouraged to see SB 957 pass out of the Senate on a bipartisan roll call and hope the Illinois House will take quick action on the bill. This important legislation would support both the safety on our highways and what is sensible for immigrants in the state of Illinois.
I commend Senate President John Cullerton and Republican Leader Christine Radogno for their leadership on this bipartisan legislation which will require all Illinois drivers, including undocumented drivers, to get trained, licensed and insured. This legislation is a critical element in making Chicago the most immigrant-friendly city in the country.”
