House Strips Student IDs from Voting Bill

A state House committee has stripped student identification cards issued by public universities from a bill about photo IDs that can be used to vote. This comes less than a week after a full Senate voted to pass a bill allowing student IDs, the Memphis Daily News reports. Rep. Jeremy Durham, R-Franklin, made the change, supported by Rep. Susan Lynn of Mt. Juliet, who said she was sponsoring the House version of the bill on behalf of the fellow Republican Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro.
