Associated Press story on Certificate for Driving attracts national, international attention

"A new law that went into effect last month means Dina Guirguis, an Egyptian in the United States on a temporary student visa, can't renew her Tennessee driver's license when it expires in a few years."

"Melissa Savage, a policy analyst with the National Conference of State Legislatures, said the certificate is the first of its kind, and other states will be watching to see how it works."

"That's not much comfort to Guirguis, who will have to start using her passport -- written entirely in Arabic and French -- as her primary identification in the United States."
