The sponsor of last year’s state law – later ruled unconstitutional -- to require voters to show government-issued photo identification at their polling place in order to cast a ballot is giving it another go. The latest voter ID bill by state Sen. Delbert Scott, R-Lowry City, is essentially the same as his previous attempt. As a result, it overcomes none of the constitutional problems the Missouri Supreme Court identified in throwing out the 2006 law last October in Weinschenk v. State of Missouri. Scott’s current bill is SB 596. For more information on the bill visit: http://www.senate.mo.gov/07info/BTS_Web/Bill.aspx?SessionType=R&BillID=45625
