Senator Jones introduced Senate Bill 16-141, concerning machine readable identification information. The bill creates a class 1 misdemeanor offense of identification document misuse. The offense occurs when a person working in a retail establishment knowingly:

  • reads, collects, or decodes any information from a machine-readable portion of an ID document;
  • retains any information obtained from a machine-readable portion of an ID document after the retail transaction has concluded; or
  • transmits to another person any information obtained from a machine-readable portion of an ID document.



The bill makes exceptions to the offense for peace officers, state agencies, or local government agencies that are acting within the course and scope of official duties. It also excludes a business entity that is acting as required by state or federal law or that is acting to prevent fraud or other criminal activity.



A person who commits identification document misuse in the course of the person's business, vocation, or occupation engages in a deceptive trade practice under the state's consumer protection laws.



Senator Jones provided three amendments, L.002, L.003, and L.005 (Attachments B, C, and D), to the committee.
