Relating to the photograph on certain forms of state issued identification.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 2046 would remove the word "color" from the "color photograph" requirement for private security guards' identification cards and a license to carry a handgun. This would allow the state to enhance the security of those licenses by using laser-etching technology that imprints the photograph directly onto the license, as opposed to having a photograph on a separate layer that can be peeled apart. This change was already applied to driver's licenses and other identification cards listed in the Transportation Code last legislative session.
Texas Action is neutral on SB 2046 as it does not affect our liberty principles.
