Summary

The Colorado Road and Community Safety Act authorizes the
issuance of a driver's license or identification card to an individual who
is not lawfully present in the United States. The following are, among
others, some of the requirements to be issued the driver's license or
identification card:
  • A requirement that the applicant has filed a Colorado
resident income tax return for the immediately preceding
year;
  • A requirement that the applicant can demonstrate being a
resident of the state for the immediately preceding 2 years;
  • A requirement to provide a documented social security
number or individual taxpayer identification number; and
  • A requirement to present a passport, consular identification
card, or military identification document from the person's
country of origin.
The bill changes these requirements by:
  • Repealing the requirement that the applicant have filed a
Colorado resident income tax return;
  • Repealing the requirement that the applicant demonstrate
being a resident of the state for the immediately preceding
2 years;
  • Repealing the requirement that the applicant provide a
documented social security number or individual taxpayer
identification number; and
  • Adding the following documents to the list of acceptable
identification documents:
  • A photocopy of a passport issued by the applicant's
country of origin;
  • A voter identification card with a photograph issued
by the applicant's country of origin;
  • A driver's license, instruction permit, or
identification card issued by the applicant's country
of origin;
  • An identifying document issued by the United
States department of homeland security, or its
contractors or subcontractors, or the United States
department of justice;
  • An identification card issued under the intensive
supervision appearance program by the United
States immigration and customs enforcement
agency; and
  • A verification-of-release identification card issued
by the office of refugee resettlement in the United
States department of health and human services.
