New Jersey Drops so-called "Tru-ID" Program
The state will maintain an existing 6-Point license system.
The American Civil Liberties Union says state officials have agreed to drop a program that sought stricter requirements for people seeking to obtain or renew driver's licenses in New Jersey.
A state judge in May upheld a temporary restraining order preventing the New Jersey Motor Vehicles Commission from implementing the program.
That move was in response to the ACLU and others claiming the agency had improperly tried to impose new standards, known as TRU-ID, without publishing details or soliciting public comment as required under state law.
MVC officials had said that any delays in implementing the standards would pose a serious disruption for drivers and adversely affect other planned program changes.
MVC officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
