The Minnesota House of Representatives will take up Representative Kiffmeyer’s Voter ID Constitutional amendment (HF2738) on the floor for a vote at 5:00 PM, Tuesday.
The companion bill in the Senate (SF1577), authored by Senator Newman is awaiting action by the Senate Rules committee before being sent to the Senate floor.
If the House bill is passed, it will be sent to the Senate where it may be accepted or rejected. The House and Senate bills are not identical, so if the Senate does reject the House language, there will be a conference committee to iron out differences between the two bills.
Anti-ID protestors are expected outside the House Chamber this evening.
Get involved: Attend the House Session wearing a “We Want Voter ID” button and/or carrying a sign supporting Voter ID. Signs are permitted in the Capitol provided they have no sticks. Signs are not allowed in the House gallery and visitors in the gallery must remain quiet.
