BILL NUMBER:S378

TITLE OF BILL: REVISED 12/30/11
An act
to amend the banking law, in relation to requiring banking institutions
to accept the Dominican consular identification card issued by the
consulate general of the Dominican Republic as a valid form of
identification for all banking transactions

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. This
legislation would mandate banks to accept identification issued by
the Dominican Consulate as a valid form of identification for all
banking transactions.
