SB13-251: Driver’s License & Identification Documentation

Immigrants’ Rights
Bill Number: SB13-251
Year: 2013
ACLU Position: Active Amend
Sponsors: Morse, Ulibarri/Melton


The bill repeals a prohibition against issuing a driver's license or identification card to a person who is not lawfully present in the U.S. and sets documentary standards for proof of identity and residency. To be licensed, the person must prove the payment of taxes and provide, from the applicant's country of origin, a valid passport, consular identification card, or military identification. A person may provide an individual taxpayer identification number instead of a social security number. A driver's license or identification card will indicate that the holder is not a citizen of the United States.
