Analysis: Miss. voter ID law not yet fully funded

Is Mississippi hurting its own case as it seeks federal approval for a voter ID law?

A bill signed by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant would require every voter to show a driver’s license or other photo identification before casting a ballot. It also promises the state will provide a free photo ID card to any voter who needs one. But, for the fiscal year that begins July 1, legislators set aside no money to make the cards.

Will the feds see the lack of up-front cash as a lack of commitment?
