Voter suppression bill advances

Over the passionate objections of Democratic lawmakers who called the bill “a farce” and a proposal based on “mere supposition” that would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of people, Republicans in the House Elections Committee approved a proposal late this afternoon to require mandatory photo ID for in-person voting.

The proposal now heads to House Appropriations where lawmakers will (hopefully) examine the costs associated with implementation.
