Under existing law, the department of revenue (department) is required to issue a driver's license, instruction permit, or identification card (identification documents) to a person who is lawfully present in the United States if:
- The individual qualifies for the identification document;
- The individual produces documents that satisfy the department that the individual is lawfully present; and
- The federal government confirms the individual's status, including electronically through the federal systematic alien verification for entitlements (SAVE) system.
The bill repeals the requirement that the federal government confirm the individual's status.
