The Republican-controlled state Senate passed a new voter ID law – which is expected to be signed by Republican Governor Tom Corbett.  Pennsylvania would become the 16th state in the nation to require voters to buy an ID to vote – a requirement that will prevent as many as five million elderly, low-income, and college student voters from voting in November, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.  The new law would also cost about $4 million to implement – all to maintain one-party Republican rule in Pennsylvania.
