LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Almost all the speakers at a Wednesday hearing about new state Department of Motor Vehicles driver authorization cards said they supported the idea.

Only Bruce Cram in Carson City called the Nevada program undeserved for people who aren't legal U.S. residents.

About 24 people spoke in Carson City, Las Vegas and Elko during a final public hearing on rules for obtaining the cards after Jan. 1.

A state Legislature panel is expected to finalize the DMV regulations Oct. 22.

The program will make Nevada one of several states letting people obtain DMV-issued driving cards.

The law was approved this year by state lawmakers and signed by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Backers said it'll make Nevada roads safer because it'll let motorists take a driving test and get auto insurance.
