Senate Bill 3750 would require voters to show a government-issued photo ID card in order to vote at their polling place.
“My bill works to do what 32 other states have already done, and that is to require a photo ID to prove you are eligible to vote. Voting is an important responsibility and right, and it is important that we prove ourselves eligible,” Senator Brady said. “We live in a state where there are rampant rumors of voter fraud. What concerns me is that we are devaluing legitimate voters by allowing someone to vote who is not legitimately registered.”
Senator Brady said a voter registration photo ID card will be available for free for those people who do not have driver’s licenses, military IDs or state ID cards.
The Executive Subcommittee on Election Law voted March 22 to hold Senate Bill 3750.
Senate Bill 3777 would require legislative approval of collective bargaining agreements between the Governor and state employee labor unions.
“Currently, there are 38 states that have collective bargaining, and 14 of those states require that part of their public union contract be approved by the legislative body in some manner,” Senator Brady said. “This legislation brings transparency, fiscal responsibility and a more ethical environment to contract negotiations between the Governor’s office and public employee unions. It will help curb political shenanigans when contracts are being negotiated during campaign seasons, often at the expense of the taxpayers of the state.”
The Executive Subcommittee on State Government Operations voted March 23 to hold Senate Bill 3777.
