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 person to present a social security number as an alternative to a taxpayer identification card. The bill allows the license or identification card to be reissued or renewed in accordance with the process used for other licenses and identification cards.
A person whose license is lost or stolen may obtain a replacement without renewing the license.
$108,992 is appropriated to the department of revenue from the licensing services cash fund to implement the bill.
