The Senate unanimously approved HB227 Wednesday, opening the door for Utah drivers to go digital.

"This bill simply directs the Department of Public Safety in consultation with the Department of Technology Services to prepare a report, then make recommendations concerning the feasibility of implementing an electronic driver's license in Utah," said bill sponsor Sen. Alvin Jackson, R-Highland.

Senators had no questions and chose not to discuss the measure. The bill will go to the governor for signature.
