A judge is scheduled to hear arguments on the constitutionality of New Jersey’s tougher new ID requirements for getting or renewing a driver’s license.
The judge ordered the program halted in May, on the day it was supposed to start, after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit over the requirements.
The ACLU said the state improperly tried to impose the new standards, known as TRU-ID, without publishing details or gathering public comment.
State officials say the new policy comes in response to federal standards. But advocates for the homeless, immigrants and others say it’s unfair.
