Fellow Grassroots Texans:
Senate Bill 14, the VOTER ID BILL, is on the Texas House Floor Monday morning (via the Texas Tribune):
The House Calendars Committee voted this evening to place the voter ID bill, SB 14, on the House calendar for Monday. Gov. Rick Perry declared the item an emergency issue just days after the Texas Legislature gaveled in two months ago…
The measure would require voters to present photo identification — like a driver’s license — at the polls in order to cast a ballot.
Asked why the item was scheduled for Monday and not later this week as some members expected, Hunter said it was just a matter of timing.
“I can’t tell you much more other than we just got the paperwork today,” he said.
If you have an opinion on this bill, you are encouraged to share it with your State Representative.
