State may lighten requirements for ID cards

In light of a recent state Supreme Court ruling on Wisconsin's voter ID law, people might not need as much documentation when they try to get a state-issued ID.

Justices upheld the law, but they raised concerns that people need to pay for documents like a birth certificate.

Governor Walker says the department of transportation is working on that issue, to make sure there aren't barriers for voters.

The voter ID law is on hold because a federal court judge ruled that it's unconstitutional. Earlier this week, the judge refused to temporarily put it in place, pending the state's appeal. The judge determined that it's unlikely that the state would win the appeal.
