SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A bill that would have reformed collective bargaining in Iowa died in the legislative funnel this week.

A bill that would have required voters to provide specific types of photo identification for anyone who wishes to vote in the state died in the legislative funnel this week.

House File 95 would have required anyone who was not registered to vote but who wished to vote on Election Day provide a valid photo-identifcation card along with a registration application, replacing the current law which allows such individuals to present a piece of mail proving their residency.

The House of Representatives passed the bill Jan. 28, but Rep. Dave Jacoby, D-Coralville, said the bill did not make it through the Senate. He said he doubted the idea would be brought up again this year.
