FLOOR PLAY BY ABBY RAPOPORT Democrats have little hope of defeating the voter ID bill this week in the House. But as Abby Rapoport writes: “This particular piece of legislation may very well be tied up in lawsuits for years. And today, Democrats can lay some of the groundwork for those future cases.” If passed, it would be the strictest voter ID law in the nation.
WHAT WE’RE WATCHING The House is scheduled to debate the infamous voter ID bill today. Democrats have successfully killed this contentious legislation in the past. But with the Republican super majority in the House this session and with Hispanic Republicans’ support, the bill is likely to pass.
