House resurrects voter photo ID effort
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- House Republicans have resurrected an effort to require Missourians to show a photo ID to vote.
A House committee approved a measure Thursday changing the state constitution to allow laws requiring voters to prove their citizenship and legal residence in Missouri.
But there's only two weeks until the session ends, and the proposed constitutional amendment hasn't yet been debated on the House or Senate floor.
The state Supreme Court tossed out a 2006 law that required voters show a government-issued identification. The high court ruled that the law violated the state constitution.
Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Indiana's similar voter ID law doesn't violate the U.S. Constitution.
