Identification Documents Unlawful Presence

Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subjects:
State Government

Bill Summary

Currently, a person who is not lawfully present in the United States may obtain a driver's license or identification card if certain requirements are met. One of the requirements is that the person present a taxpayer identification card. The bill allows a social security number to also meet this requirement. The bill also allows such a license to be reissued or renewed in accordance with the process used by other licensees.

An appropriation is made to open additional offices to perform these functions. Currently, a footnote in the long bill states an intention that the number of offices offering these licenses be decreased when the appropriation is spent. The bill repeals this footnote.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced and does not reflect any amendments that were subsequently adopted.)
