Bill distinguishes IDs for people under 21

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Legislation has been introduced to help make it easier to distinguish individuals who are of age and those underage. Senator Tony Ada's Bill 171 would require that licenses issued to people under the age of 21 years shall prominently display the month and year of when the person would turn 21 whereas the general appearance of the licenses shall be substantially different from licenses issued to those 21 years and older.

He explained,"It turns around and it distinguishes between under 21 and over 21 and the reason why we did that is because with government IDs and driver's licenses things like, we'll be able to distinguish those already of age, and drinking age and those under age."

The measure would also apply to all certificates of identification, all government IDs and all student identification cards. The bill is co-sponsored by Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz. You can read Bill 171 at GuamLegislature.com.
