The Kansas voter ID law will be the subject of a U.S. Civil Rights Commission committee hearing next month.
The Kansas voter ID law is one of most restrictive in the country.
Pushed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach, it demands voters not only have photo ID but they prove they are American citizens.
The Kansas Advisory Committee to the Civil Rights Commission has discussed for about a year whether the law has suppressed voter turnout in minority communities.
Now a hearing has been set for 9:00 a.m. , January 28, at the Topeka Public Library.
