                   A  BILL  FOR  AN  ACT

RELATING TO THE ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATES OF IDENTIFICATION.

 5 date, attorney general's signature, and registrar's signature,
 
 6 thereby leaving the design of the card to the discretion of the
 
 7 attorney general and allowing the possible use of an
 
 8 identification number other than the social security number, and
 
 9 (2) to change the designated fingerprints to be obtained and
 
10 retained by the attorney general.
