A private member's bill sponsored by Brandon West Progressive Conservative MLA Reg Helwer passed unanimously in the Manitoba Legislature today.

The bill urges the provincal government to work with other provinces, the federal government and the Department of National Defence in creating a national driver's license program for military personnel, so they no longer have to get new licenses when they are posted to different provinces.

"Military personnel make many sacrifices in the defense of our country and this is one way we can give something back and thank them for their service," Helwer said in a release.

There are currently more than 5,300 regular and reserve military personnel in Manitoba.
