Measure Giving Liz’s Son a Visa Is Signed

Associated Press

President Reagan on Wednesday signed a bill to grant actor Michael Wilding a resident visa despite a drug conviction 14 years ago in Wales.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.), who said he came to know and respect Wilding when he was married to the actor’s mother, actress Elizabeth Taylor.

The bill would exempt Wilding, 34, the son of Taylor and the late British actor also named Michael Wilding, from a law prohibiting people with drug violations from being granted residence status.
