Sen. Mike Morgan
Senate President Pro
Tempore Mike Morgan Statement on Voter ID
“For the second consecutive day, the Senate Republican caucus
has put politics ahead of the Oklahoma people. This is typical election
year tricks the GOP trots out to divert the dialogue on real solutions
for Oklahoma families, like access to affordable healthcare coverage.
The so-called “Voter ID” bill is bad policy for our
citizens and straight out of the Karl Rove school of election year
posturing. It is another way to disenfranchise senior citizens and
The bill was fraught with loopholes that could be manipulated.
Real reform takes real commitment to address problems. This bill
answered none of those questions, but further muddied the water.
I encourage the Republicans to spend as much time and energy on
providing adequate healthcare to our citizens as they do on these
types of partisan games.”
