SB18-108 - Referred to House Appropriations

01:36:07 PM  

Representatives Singer and Arndt presented Senate Bill 18-108 to the committee, along with a handout [Attachment A]. Under current law, the Colorado Road and Community Safety Act (Senate Bill 13-251) authorizes the state Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within the Department of Revenue (DOR) to issue a driver license, identification card, or instruction permit (SB 13-251 documents) to an individual who is either temporarily lawfully present in the United States or a Colorado resident who is not a U.S. citizen and does not have permanent residency status. These SB 13-251 documents are valid for three years after issuance, with an exception for minor driver licenses. The bill clarifies that SB 13-251 documents may be renewed or reissued in accordance with the process used for standard documents without the individual having to resubmit the initial requisite documentation if the individual provides a previously issued SB 13-251 document and proof of current Colorado residency. As with standard licenses, SB 13-251 documents may be extended by the DMV for one year if the individual is temporarily out of state or is prevented by disability from renewing a document and pays a fee. A person whose license is lost or stolen may obtain a replacement without renewing the license. Individuals seeking to obtain SB 13-251 documents are currently required to meet several documentary requirements, including providing an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). The bill allows an applicant to provide his or her social security number (SSN) in lieu of an ITIN. Acceptable documentation of the SSN may include a social security card itself, electronic confirmation through the Social Security Online Verification System, or any other documentation deemed by rule to be acceptable by the DOR.
