HARRISBURG - Republicans continued Monday to press legislation to require Pennsylvanians to show photo identification before they vote, despite resistance from Democrats who say it is intended to suppress turnout of poor and black voters.

The Senate State Government Committee voted, 6-5, to lengthen the list of acceptable photo IDs beyond those included in a more restrictive bill passed by the state House of Representatives in June.

That bill would have required voters to show a government-issued photo ID. With the amendment, it would allow some expired government IDs, as well as IDs issued by accredited Pennsylvania colleges and universities and nursing and personal-care homes.
