2019R1 HB 2015

This bill allows illegal aliens to receive drivers license without proof of citizenship and requires ODOT to do education for use of the license, and rules to update voter requirements to comply with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Does not apply to Real ID, commercial drivers license or commercial drivers permit.

Personal Choice and Responsibility
Allows a person when not providing a Social Security number to provide a written statement that the person has not been assigned a Social Security number to obtain a drivers license, but provides no requirement for the written statement. It doesn't even need to be in English and English isn't a requirement for the drivers license so how can they be expected to follow driving laws.

Fiscal Responsibility
For the administration of driver and motor vehicle services, funding is increased by $4,264,589.

Limited Government
A driver license, driver permit or identification card that is not a Real ID may not be used as evidence of the holder’s citizenship or immigration status for any purpose. A person may not discriminate against an individual because the individual holds or presents a form of government issued identification other than a Real ID. HB 2015A requires ODOT to do outreach in multiple languages to educate on the use of the new license. Repeals Department of Transportation ombudsman services.

Oregon Citizens' Lobby is a group of citizens whose mission is to help empower Oregonians by monitoring the legislative process in Oregon. We analyze bills and track them throughout their life cycle. The bills receive a score and legislators receive a grade based upon the five core principles of Oregon Citizens' Lobby.

The result of our work is posted on this website for the public to review. Our hope is that this information will help citizens better understand proposed legislation, which will in turn allow them to give relevant testimony on bills, petition their government for redress of grievances, and hold these politicians accountable at the ballot box for their actions.
