Charlie Baker is urging voters to approve a ballot measure that would allow drivers to have up to three drivers licenses at one time.
The measure, sponsored by Democrat Stephanie Simon, was approved by voters in the Boston metropolitan area on Tuesday, but will have to go through a statewide ballot, which Baker said could take months.
Baker said Monday he expects the initiative to be approved by March 2018.
Baker said he plans to sign the measure into law as early as Thursday, according to The Boston Globe.
A spokeswoman for Simon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The proposal allows for up to five drivers licenses for a single person, and for drivers under age 30 to have one driver license with up to seven other people.
The bill also creates a $500 cap on drivers licenses that can be used to pay for a home, car, motorcycle or recreational vehicle.
The Massachusetts General Assembly passed a similar measure last year that has been approved by the governor.
