U-Turn Over Licenses

Re "State Moves Toward Repeal of License Law," Nov. 25:

I guess I'm getting too old. I still thought we had representative government.

If our elected lawmakers can vacillate 180 degrees in such a short time, who are they representing? The only motivation that I can see for such a dramatic reversal on the law giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants is the new governor's threat to take the issue to a public initiative. Would that be the voice of the people?
