Kansas House Re-opens Kobach's Voter-Citizenship Debate
05/09/2012

Kris Kobach, who is a candidate for Secretary of State in Kansas and is the co-author of the Arizona Immigration Law.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach's proposal to
start requiring first-time Kansas voters to produce proof of their
U.S. citizenship next month has been revived in the state House.
     House members gave the measure first-round approval Tuesday on a
67-53 vote and expect to take final action Wednesday.
     Kansas has a proof-of-citizenship requirement for first-time
voters, but it doesn't take effect until January.
     Kobach wants the rule in place June 15, in time for a normal
surge of registrations before a presidential election. Critics say
the requirement will suppress voter turnout.
     The House approved a version of Kobach's proposal in February,
but that measure is stuck in a Senate committee.
     Supporters hope if the House passes another version, the Senate
will approve the measure without having its committee consider it
first.
