Remove Lawful Presence Verification Credentialing
The act eliminates the requirement that the department of education and each division, board, or agency of the department of regulatory agencies verify the lawful presence of each applicant before issuing or renewing a license.
The act also specifies that lawful presence is not required of any applicant for any state or local license, certificate, or registration. The act is a state law within the meaning of the federal law that gives states authority to provide for eligibility for state and local public benefits to persons who are unlawfully residing in the United States.
