    SENATE BILL 011_018

    A BILL FOR AN ACT
    CONCERNING A REQUIREMENT TO PROVIDE PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP TO REGISTER TO VOTE.

    A person who applies to register to vote is required to provide proof of citizenship. An applicant establishes proof of citizenship by providing:
    * A United States passport or photocopy thereof;
    * A birth certificate or photocopy thereof;
    A United States naturalization document or a photocopy thereof;
    * The number on the applicant's certificate of naturalization, verified by the county clerk and recorder; or
    * Any document or method of proof of citizenship established by federal immigration law.

    Additionally, the county clerk and recorder is prohibited from registering a person who has completed a provisional ballot affidavit until the person provides proof of citizenship.

    A person is exempt from the proof of citizenship requirements if the person is registered prior to July 1, 2011, or if the person is an absent uniformed services elector or a nonresident or resident overseas elector and applies to register by federal postcard application.

    A registered elector is not required to submit proof of citizenship when the elector:
    * Moves from one county to another county within the state and has completed an emergency registration affidavit;
    * Moves within the county and changes his or her address on the registration record;
    * Changes his or her name on the registration record; or
    * Declares, changes, or withdraws an affiliation with a political party or political organization.

    Support CO SB11-018 NOT HB1003

    Colorado HB 1003 is not good and should be stopped. It merely calls for a "photo" ID to vote. That can include a student or military ID or a driver's license with photo. These are NOT proof of citizenship.

    Photos can be falsified, as well.

    SB11-018 is the bill to SUPPORT.

    A BILL FOR AN ACT

    CONCERNING THE VERIFICATION OF 101 THE WORK ELIGIBILITY STATUS OF NEW EMPLOYEES THROUGH THE FEDERAL ELECTRONIC VERIFICATION PROGRAM.

    Bill Summary

    Under current law, employers are required to examine, and retain records of examining, the legal work status of new employees. The bill repeals the current law and instead creates the "Fair and Legal Employment for Coloradans Act" (act), which requires all nongovernmental employers in the state to participate in the federal electronic verification program (e-verify program) for purposes of verifying the work eligibility status of all new employees hired by an employer. A person who employs only H-2A workers does not have to comply with the act.
    Employers are obligated to start participating in the e-verify program in accordance with the following schedule:
    * For employers with 200 or more employees, by January 1, 2012;
    * For employers with 50 or more employees but fewer than 200 employees, by July 1, 2012; and
    * For employers with fewer than 50 employees, by July 1, 2014.

    The attorney general is to impose fines on an employer for knowingly or intentionally failing to participate in the e-verify program or provide documentary proof of participation.

    A BILL FOR AN ACT

    CONCERNING CLASSIFICATION AS AN UNSUBSIDIZED IN-STATE STUDENT FOR TUITION PURPOSES AT STATE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION.

    Bill Summary

    The bill allows a student, other than certain foreign students or trainees defined in federal law, to be classified as an unsubsidized in-state student for tuition purposes so long as the student:
    * Attended a public or private high school in Colorado for 3 or more years immediately preceding the date the student graduated from a Colorado high school or earned a general educational development certificate (certificate) in Colorado; and
    * Is admitted to an institution of higher education in Colorado within 12 months after graduating from high school or earning a certificate.

    The bill provides a one-year exception to the eligibility requirements for a student who meets all of the eligibility requirements but was not admitted into an institution of higher education within 12 months after graduating from high school or earning a certificate. The exception is repealed on July 1, 2012.

    A student applying for the tuition classification who does not have documentation of lawful immigration or nationality status shall submit an affidavit to the institution of higher education, stating that he or she is requesting documentation of, has applied for, or will be applying for lawful status as soon as he or she is eligible. The information contained in the affidavit is confidential and is a protected education record of the student.

    A student classified as an unsubsidized in-state student is not eligible for a college opportunity fund stipend or for any state-funded, need-based financial aid.

    Eligibility for the tuition classification is not based upon residency.

    A student who qualifies for unsubsidized in-state student tuition classification shall not be counted as a resident, and the tuition classification shall not be deemed to establish residency or domicile for any purpose.
    Verification of lawful presence in the United States is not required for persons applying for unsubsidized tuition classification.
