In listening to the discussion today on the radio, this is aimed more toward students who are moving in to Ohio to attend universities & colleges. They would be required to register their cars in Ohio & obtain An Ohio driver's license, similar to what occurs when you move to another state. The driver's license from another state would be surrendered and replaced with one from Ohio, as the person would be residing here for a minimum of 4 yrs, depending upon their educational goals. Many students are here from other states for quite a few years. There are likely advantages & disadvantages to students depending on how you look at it. One student said that many of them are deciding whether to stay in Ohio & what the job opportunities are anyway, so it is just a step in that direction.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you zwant; blindness is not what holds you back.
