Lawmakers on Wednesday moved proposed new absentee voter requirements into a different bill SB 210, which was previously an unrelated bill until today’s amendment. The change was made less than an hour before the House session convened.
The House had initially been scheduled to consider SB 1779 that would have required voters to make a copy of their identification to vote by mail. Procedural issues kept SB 1779 from being heard today, and lawmakers early Wednesday afternoon made the last minute amendment to the unrelated SB 210.
