North Carolina Republican Says Voter ID Bill Will Now Move Ahead

June 25, 2013 11:41 a.m.

A voter ID bill in North Carolina will move ahead in the wake of the Supreme Court decision striking down part of the Voting Rights Act, according to the Associated Press.

From the AP:

A bill requiring voters to present one of several forms of state-issued photo ID starting in 2016 cleared the House two months ago, but it’s been sitting since in the Senate Rules Committee to wait for a ruling by the justices in an Alabama case, according to Sen. Tom Apodaca, R-Henderson, the committee chairman. He said a bill will now be rolled out in the Senate next week.
