HB108: Require drivers license or "real" state ID to vote

HB108 changes the definition of acceptable IDs to be presented prior to casting a vote, and increases to 60 days the minimum residency requirement in order to get that ID. It will not recognize US passports, military IDs, student ID or any other forms of identification other than state drivers license, state "Real ID", and tribal IDs.

HB104: Criminalize the violent death of unborn fetus

Proponents of this bill argue that pregnant women are frequently targeted for abuse, because they are pregnant. This bill would define a fetus as an unborn person. Thus defined, the fetus would become a victim separate from the mother, and fetal death could be charged as murder, manslaughter, etc. The usual supporters (abortion opponents) lined up to support the bill at the first hearing on January 14, basically downplaying the idea that defining a fetus as an unborn person would have any impact outside this legislation.
