Voter ID Surprise
Voter ID legislation moved along with surprisingly little fanfare, so much so that opponents weren’t sure that Governor Chafee had signed until three days after the fact. Perhaps I’m just too cynical, but I can’t help but feel as if I’m missing something.
The bill text is somewhat light on details, so I suspect that the ID cards will be easier to get than most Anchor Rising readers would like. Strictness and enforcement will also be critical aspects to watch. But still, the legislation looks promising.
This being Rhode Island, though, I can’t help but wonder what the catch is or what other piece of legislation was bought with this coin.
