(5 ILCS 230/10)
    Sec. 10. Acceptance of consular identification document.
    (a) When requiring members of the public to provide identification, each State agency and officer and unit of local government shall accept a consular identification document as valid identification of a person.
    (b) A consular identification document shall be accepted for purposes of identification only and does not convey an independent right to receive benefits of any type.
    (c) A consular identification document may not be accepted as identification for obtaining a driver's license, other than a temporary visitor's driver's license, or registering to vote.
    (d) A consular identification document does not establish or indicate lawful U.S. immigration status and may not be viewed as valid for that purpose, nor does a consular identification document establish a foreign national's right to be in the United States or remain in the United States.
    (e) The requirements of subsection (a) do not apply if:
        (1) a federal law, regulation, or directive or a
    
federal court decision requires a State agency or officer or a unit of local government to obtain different identification;
        (2) a federal law, regulation, or directive preempts
    
state regulation of identification requirements; or
        (3) a State agency or officer or a unit of local
    
government would be unable to comply with a condition imposed by a funding source which would cause the State agency or officer or unit of local government to lose funds from that source.
    (f) Nothing in subsection (a) shall be construed to prohibit a State agency or officer or a unit of local government from:
        (1) requiring additional information from persons in
    
order to verify a current address or other facts that would enable the State agency or officer or unit of local government to fulfill its responsibilities, except that this paragraph (1) does not permit a State agency or officer or a unit of local government to require additional information solely in order to establish identification of the person when the consular identification document is the form of identification presented;
        (2) requiring fingerprints for identification
    
purposes under circumstances where the State agency or officer or unit of local government also requires fingerprints from persons who have a driver's license or Illinois Identification Card; or
        (3) requiring additional evidence of identification
    
if the State agency or officer or unit of local government reasonably believes that: (A) the consular identification document is forged, fraudulent, or altered; or (B) the holder does not appear to be the same person on the consular identification document.
