SGR 2015 leg

Representative Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe, and Sandoval) has filed House Bill 94, the REAL ID Compliance Act. This legislation will allow the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division to issue a REAL ID compliant identification card to applicants that meet the requirements of the Federal REAL ID Act of 2005. The proposal would provide for, but not require, citizens to obtain REAL ID compliant identification. New, REAL ID compliant identification cards would be distinguishable from other, non-REAL ID-compliant licenses and identification cards.
