Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples, one of four Republicans running for lieutenant governor, is already coming under fire from opponents for voting as a state senator in 2001 to approve a bill allowing those in the country illegally to pay in-state tuition.

Late in the 2001 session, Staples joined 28 other Democrat senators to approve legislation that would have allowed the Department of Public Safety to accept foreign birth certificates or foreign passports as valid proof of identification to obtain a driver license. Gov. Rick Perry ended up killing the measure via veto.
