Identification Documents Unlawful Presence

Concerning the issuance of identification documents to individuals who cannot demonstrate lawful presence in the United States, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
2016 Regular Session
State Government
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
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.)
