PAWNBROKER ONE ID CARD                                                     

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Pawnbroker Regulation Act.   Provides  that  a  person      
   only need  show  one form of identification when pawning items if the       
   form of identification contains a photograph  of  the  person  and  is      
   issued  by  a  governmental  entity.    Preempts exercise of home rule      
   powers. Effective immediately.                                              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Professional Regulation)

        Provides that in municipalities of 1,000,000 or more inhabitants,

        Provides that only one form of identification is required only if      
   the identification shown is a driver's license or a State identifica-       
   tion card issued by the Secretary of State and contains a photograph        
   of the person being identified (rather than if the identification           
   shown is issued by a governmental entity and contains a photograph of       
   the  person  being identified).
