PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Requires banking institutions to accept the Dominican consular identification card as a valid form of identification for all banking transactions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends the Banking Law by adding a new section 9-v. Requires every banking institution to accept as a valid form of identification, the Dominican identification card issued by the consulate general of the Dominican Republic for all banking transactions. Defines banking institutions as all banks, trust companies, savings banks, savings and loan associations, licensed foreign banks and credit unions.

Section 2. Effective Date

EXISTING LAW: None.

JUSTIFICATION: Illegal immigrants are not permitted to open up bank accounts because they are not able to produce a viable form of identification.
