TYLER - East Texas Representative Leo Berman says the next legislative session in January 2011, he wants to see the Voter ID Bill get passed on the floor.
Berman says Tommy Merritt and Chuck Hopson voted against the bill when proposed in April of 2007.
Berman says he doesn't understand why Hopson and Merritt both claim they are for the bill on their campaign ads.
The Voter ID Bill or House Bill 218 was drafted by Rep. Betty Brown of Athens.
76 representatives voted in a record setting in favor of the bill and 69 opposed.
The bill, if passed, would make someone show a picture ID before voting in an election.
