LITTLE ROCK â€” Arkansas' law requiring voters to show photo identification faced questions Wednesday about who would resolve disputes when people don't look like their ID photos, as the state's top election panel began finalizing rules for its enforcement.
The state Board of Election Commissioners voted to begin accepting public comments on the new law, which is set to take effect next year. The panel is expected to hold a public hearing on the rules and give final approval to them on Aug. 21.
WASHINGTON â€” The House has rejected a five year, half-trillion-dollar farm bill that would have cut $2 billion annually from food stamps and let states impose broad new work requirements on those who receive them.
Those cuts weren't deep enough for many Republicans who objected to the cost of the nearly $80 billion-a-year program, which has doubled in the past five years. The vote was 234-195 against the bill, with 62 Republicans voting against it.
