Nevada Voter ID Bills Moved to Money Panel for Fiscal Review

Posted: Updated:
A Nevada Assembly committee has advanced two bills requiring voters to show identification to cast a ballot.

The Assembly Legislative Operations and Elections Committee voted Thursday to send Assembly Bill 253 and Assembly Bill 266 to a money committee for financial review, but without a recommendation to pass it.

The measures would require voters to show a government-issued identification card, such as a driver's license, or an identification card specifically created for the purpose of voting.

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles would be required to create and distribute free voter cards to a person without another form of identification.

The measures were the subject of a spirited hearing March 17. Witnesses disagreed on whether Nevada suffered from a voter fraud problem and whether an ID requirement would disenfranchise poor and marginalized citizens.  (AP)
