Senate to press for allowing student IDs to vote

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The Senate sponsor of a bill to allow student IDs to vote says he plans to press ahead with the matter even through the House version would not allow the practice.

A House committee last week removed photo IDs issued by public colleges and universities from the measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Susan Lynn, who said she agreed with the change.

The chamber was scheduled to vote on its version on Monday evening.

But Republican Sen. Bill Ketron in a statement Monday noted that the upper chamber overwhelmingly rejected efforts to take student IDs out of the bill when it passed on a 21-8 vote earlier this month.

Ketron said he would take the bill to conference committee if needed.

The measure also eliminates library cards as valid voter ID.
