A voter identification bill that passed the Mississippi Senate last month has died in a House committee. And, an effort to revive ID and other elections issues has failed, for now, in the Senate.
Tuesday was the deadline for House committees to consider bills that started in the Senate, and for Senate committees to consider bills that came from the House.
New bills can filed, but only if two-thirds of the House and Senate agree.
The Senate debated a resolution Tuesday that would have allowed a new bill to be filed for voter ID and other election issues. But the resolution fell two votes short.
Senate Elections Committee chairman Terry Burton of Newton says he might try again later.
