Tribal ID valid for government under Nevada Senate bill
April 20, 2017
The Nevada Senate on Thursday approved a bill authorizing state and local governments to accept a tribal identification card as valid ID.
At the same time, SB399 would mandate businesses that accept a driver's license as ID accept tribal cards.
Sen. James Settelmeyer, R-Minden, said the purpose of the bill is simply to declare an ID card issued by a tribal government as valid to identify a person. The card must bear information similar to a driver's license including a photograph of the holder.
The measure was approved unanimously and forwarded to the Assembly for consideration.
