05:14 PM -- HB16-1274



Senator Ulibarri presented House Bill 16-1274 to the committee, along with a packet of handouts (Attachment G). The bill expands the Colorado Road and Community Safety Act (Senate Bill 13-251) driver's license, instruction permit, and identification card program for individuals not lawfully present or temporarily lawfully present in Colorado. Under the bill, six additional Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices may issue SB13-251 driver's licenses, instruction permits, and identification cards (SB13-251 documents) effective March 1, 2017. The bill also repeals a footnote in the 2015 Session Laws that limits the number of DMV offices that may issue SB13-251 documents to three DMV offices and then again to one DMV office when issuance falls below 5,000 per month or total appointments served has reached 60,000.

The bill also expands the types of documents that may be accepted by DMV offices from a SB13-251 document applicant. Specifically, the bill adds an individual's social security number, documentation for which may include a social security card itself or any other documentation acceptable to the Department of Revenue, to the list of acceptable SB-251 identification documents. Additionally, the bill allows SB13-351 documents to be reissued or renewed following the same procedures as available to other license, permit, or identification card holders in Colorado.
