Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill allows an individual to use an identification card issued by a federally
recognized Indian tribe in this state as proof of residence for voter registration
purposes if the identification card indicates the individual's current and complete
name and residential address. Current law allows an individual to use an
identification card issued by a federally recognized Indian tribe in this state as proof
of identification for voting purposes.
This bill expands the definition of “official identification card," for purposes
related to purchasing alcohol beverages, to include a valid identification card issued
by a federally recognized Indian tribe in this state that contains the card holder's
photograph, full name, address, and date of birth. Current law does not require a
person to present an official identification card in order to purchase alcohol
beverages. However, a licensed retailer of alcohol beverages may require a person
to present an official identification card, documentary proof of age, a driver's license
issued by another state, or any other form of identification or proof of age acceptable
to the retailer before providing alcohol beverages to the person or allowing the person
to enter the retail licensed premises. In addition, current law imposes a variety of

penalties for various offenses relating to the falsification, adulteration, or misuse of
an official identification card.
The bill also allows an individual to use a valid identification card issued by a
federally recognized Indian tribe in this state that contains the card holder's
photograph, full name, address, and date of birth for the purpose of certain sales and
purchases that, under current law, require the seller or purchaser to present a valid
identification card, including 1) purchasing cigarettes, nicotine products, or tobacco
products; 2) selling nonferrous scrap and other metal articles to a scrap dealer; 3)
selling used home furnishings to an antique dealer or recycler; and 4) selling
secondhand articles or secondhand jewelry to a pawnbroker, secondhand article
dealer, or secondhand jewelry dealer.
Finally, current law prohibits certain prescribed controlled substances from
being dispensed to an individual by a pharmacist or other practitioner unless the
individual presents valid identification. The bill adds to the list of valid forms of
identification for this purpose a valid identification card issued by a federally
recognized Indian tribe in this state that contains the card holder's photograph, full
name, address, and date of birth.
