The House gave preliminary approval to a bill that largely conforms the state’s Voter ID law to a court decision requiring a process for people to vote who lack an acceptable form of identification. The 95-54, almost party-line vote capped a lengthy debate over the bill and 30 proposed amendments. Rep. Roland Gutierrez (D-San Antonio) was the lone Democrat to vote shown voting for the bill, but he later placed a statement in the House Journal saying he intended to vote no.
