Spitzer Drops Illegal-Immigrant License Proposal

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer has withdrawn his plan to provide illegal immigrants in the state with driver's licenses.

Spitzer said Wednesday that the plan would have made New York roads safer and would have helped bring illegal immigrants "out of the shadows."

He talks to Melissa Block about why he dropped the proposal.
