Arkansas governor rejects voter ID measure

(CNN) - A bill that would have required voters in Arkansas to produce photo identification before being allowed a ballot was rejected on Monday by the state's Democratic governor, who said the measure was too expensive and could disenfranchise legal voters.

Gov. Mike Beebe wrote that he thought the bill "unnecessarily restricts and impairs our citizens' right to vote," adding the implementation costs would have risen to $300,000.
