Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Consular Identification Document Act. Defines "consular identification document" as an official identification card issued by a foreign government through its consular offices to identify a foreign national who is living outside of that nation. Provides that each State agency and officer and unit of local government, when requiring members of the public to provide identification, shall accept a consular identification document as valid identification of a person, with specified exceptions. Provides that a State agency or officer or a unit of local government is not prohibited from requiring: additional information from persons in order to verify a current address or other facts that would enable the State agency or officer or unit of local government to fulfill its responsibilities, with specified exceptions; fingerprints for identification purposes under circumstances where the State agency or officer or unit of local government also requires fingerprints from persons who have a driver's license or Illinois Identification Card; or additional evidence of identification if the State agency or officer or unit of local government reasonably believes that the consular identification document is forged, fraudulent, or altered, or the holder does not appear to be the same person on the consular identification document. Provides that the use by a State agency or officer or a unit of local government of information collected from, or appearing on, a consular identification document is subject to the same privacy and disclosure limitations that apply to the Illinois Identification Card.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything and re-inserts similar provisions with these additions: provides, in the definition of "consular identification document", that a foreign government must require an individual to provide proof of nationality, proof of identity, and proof of residence in the consular district to obtain a consular identification document and that a foreign government must include specified security features and data in the consular identification document; requires an issuing consulate to file with the Department of State Police a copy of the issuing consulate's consular identification document and a certification of the procedures used to comply with specified requirements; provides that a consular identification document shall be accepted for purposes of identification only and does not convey an independent right to receive benefits of any type; provides that a consular identification document may not be accepted as identification for obtaining a driver's license or registering to vote; and provides that a consular identification document does not establish or indicate lawful immigration status and may not be viewed as valid for that purpose, nor does a consular identification document establish a foreign national's right to be in the United States or remain in the United States.
