SB14-087: Identification Card Issuance Standards

Immigrants’ Rights
Bill Number: SB14-087
Year: 2014
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: Fields, Ulibarri

Description:

Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force. Section 1 of the bill requires the department of revenue to offer exceptions processing at each of its offices that issue driver’s licenses or identification cards. Section 2 requires the department to issue an identification card using certain documents issued by the United States government to prove lawful presence if the person applying for the card is:
• At least 70 years old; or
• At least 50 years old and a veteran of the armed forces.

The department is also required to promulgate rules to clear up minor spelling discrepancies and to accept alternate documents showing lawful presence.
Sections 3 and 4 create a simplified process for a person to change his or her name to settle name discrepancies if the person is:
• At least 70 years old; or
• At least 50 years old and a veteran of the armed forces.

The person need not publish the name change and may get a name-based instead of a fingerprint-based criminal history check. The person must sign an affidavit saying the change is to get an identification card and will not harm other people.
