Constitutional Amendment For Voter Photo ID? GOP:”We’ll Get Back To You On That”

Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch and House Speaker Kurt Zellers

A Republican backed proposal to require a photo ID to vote in Minnesota will not likely win Governor Mark Dayton’s approval. So if it vetoed by the Governor, will Republicans attempt an end run and have voters decide the issue by voting on a constitutional amendment? Majority Leader Senator Amy Koch is cagey in her answer saying things are moving ahead to pass the law. Pressed on the issue, she says most Minnesotans support the proposal. “Why don’t they get a constitutional amendment” asks Star Tribune reporter Rachel Stassen-Berger. “We’ll get back to you on that, ” replies Senator Koch.
