CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada Senate panel is set to consider creating driver privilege cards for non-U.S citizens.
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis of Las Vegas will present SB303 to the Senate Transportation Committee Wednesday.
The cards would allow non-citizens to obtain driving privilege cards, though they would not serve as federal identification like driver's licenses.
To obtain a driver's privilege card, the person must submit proof of their name, age, Nevada residency and social security number or individual taxpayer identification number. The cards would be identical in design to driver's licenses, but they would have the phrase "Not for federal ID" printed on the front.
Card holders would have to renew the cards annually.
