GA - Voter ID bill stirs furor
Voter ID bill stirs furor | ajc.com: "Legislation to require Georgians to show photo identification at the polls advanced Tuesday over passionate objections from lawmakers who said the move could disenfranchise many black, elderly and rural voters.
After more than four hours of debate, the Senate approved House Bill 244 by a vote of 31-20. While the vote was not final — the bill must go back to the House for approval of minor changes — the Senate action moved the legislation much closer to becoming law."
