General Assembly mulls more legislation

November 10, 2010

An Illinois driver’s license or other state identification card could be produced absent the holder’s street address, under a bill introduced in February.

At the request of the applicant, House Bill 5949 would permit merely the holder’s city, state and ZIP code to appear on the card. The bill is being studied by the House Vehicles and Safety Committee.

Illinois residents who are military service members on active duty or less than one year removed from active duty would be exempt from certain motor vehicle taxes, under HB 5828.

The bill, which would amend the Use Tax Act, the Retailers’ Occupation Tax Act, and the motor vehicle privilege tax provisions of the Illinois Vehicle Code, is being reviewed by the House Revenue & Finance Committee.

The House and Senate are scheduled to adjourn May 7.
