Platform, resolution debate wraps up

The delegates have signed off on the resolutions and platform.

They made one tweak to a resolution calling for granting undocumented immigrants noncitizen temporary licenses.

The original resolution called for supporting legislation "that would grant undocumented immigrants the opportunity to obtain a noncitizen temporary license and obtain automobile insurance after completing a safe-driving course."

The delegates dropped the language referencing a safe-driving course. Some raised concerns it was a hurdle for those seeking a license, while others pointed out those who obtain a driver's license have to prove their proficiency as a driver as part of the process so the language was redundant.

We also have an update on attendance for the convention. As of 9:45 a.m., there are 1,012 registered attendees.
