NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --
The House State and Local Government Subcommittee voted 5-3 Wednesday in favor of a measure sponsored by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner of Nashville.
State Elections Coordinator Mark Goins stressed that the current voter ID law remains in effect unless both chambers pass a repeal.
The panel had earlier rejected several other efforts to tweak the voter ID law passed enacted last year, including efforts to exempt senior citizens and to allow students to use IDs issued by colleges.
