Identification Cards and Driver's Licenses Before Leaving Corrections
Senator Jesse Kiehl is the sponsor of SB209 which would require the Department of Corrections and Administration to work together to provide valid State Identification and/or a Driver's License to qualified incarcerated persons before their release from custody.
A known barrier to those in the process of reentry into the community is difficulty in obtaining a valid form of identification and/or driver's license upon release from custody. Documentation of this kind is a necessity in obtaining housing, employment and numerous other aspects of reentry. Senator Kiehl's legislation aims to remove this particular obstacle for returning citizens.
S.O.L.O.G. is in full support of SB209 in its current form. Please send your comments on this proposed legislation to Senator Kiehl's office by emailing Senator.Jesse.Kiehl@akleg.gov
