NASHVILLE (AP) - A bill moving through the Legislature would clarify the length of time a person legally admitted to the United States can maintain a driver's license.

The measure sponsored by Sen. Jim Kyle, D-Memphis, unanimously passed the Senate on Wednesday.

The bill would remove the one-year minimum period for a temporary license and instead state the license is valid only during the period of time the person is authorized to stay.

It may not be issued for a period of more than five years.

The companion version is scheduled to be heard next week in a House finance committee.
