House to hear new version of voter ID bill

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Student identification cards issued by public universities could not be used to vote under legislation scheduled to be heard on the House floor Monday evening.

The measure was amended in a House committee last week to remove the use of student IDs. Less than a week before, the full Senate voted 21-8 to pass a bill to allow such IDs.

Republican Rep. Susan Lynn of Mt. Juliet is the House sponsor of the measure, and Republican Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro has the companion bill.

Lynn said Ketron is agreeable to the change even though he defeated efforts to remove college IDs from the bill in the Senate.

Both versions eliminate library cards as suitable IDs to vote.
