An Arizona Senate committee voted on Jan. 13 to advance a bill that would prevent the city from issuing the proposed municipal ID cards unless they use the same strict criteria used for state-issued identification. The vote was split along party lines, with four Republicans voting to advance the measure and the three Democrats on the committee voting against it. Advocates of the bill say it would make it easier for city residents to access city programs, banks and other services, while opponents argue that all identification should be held to the standards of the statewide identification.
