Running it up the flagpole, see who salutes. That sort of thing.
Spencer's bill would bar applicants from wearing masks or veils while posing for their driver's license photos – something the state Department of Driver Services already requires. The measure appears to also make the Muslim burqa and veil subject to the state's anti-masking law, a statute originally aimed at the KKK.
