Voter ID Bill Clears Senate Committee

rooster IDToday, the Senate State Agencies Committee passed a voter ID bill for the first time in Arkansas history. The bill will now head to the floor of the Senate for a vote.

We believe the vote was 5-3, but it’s hard to know for sure since the committees do not record their votes. AAI’s Dan Greenberg and Senator Bryan King (sponsor of the bill) spoke in favor of the bill’s passage before the committee today. We’ll have some video from the hearing either tonight or tomorrow.

I encourage you to read the bill for yourself here.
