JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri sheriffs say they stand ready to issue photo ID cards for concealed gun holders if the Legislature helps pay for the equipment.

The Missouri Sheriffs' Association said Friday that it's willing to work with legislators on efforts to shift the responsibility of producing the cards from the state Department of Revenue to the local sheriffs who already handle applications.

Some lawmakers want to strip the Revenue Department of the duty because of concerns that agency databases on concealed gun permit holders could be used to infringe on their privacy rights.

The Revenue Department recently began making electronic copies of concealed gun permits. The Highway Patrol also has acknowledged that it got a list of concealed gun permit holders from the department and shared it with a federal investigator.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Republican-controlled Missouri House members have approved a proposal that would require voters to show photo identification at polling places.

Proponents say requiring voters to show a government-issued photo ID before casting ballots would help prevent election fraud. Critics argue Missouri has had no known recent instances of voter impersonation. They also say the rule could make it harder for some people to vote.

Lawmakers have discussed the proposal several times in recent years, with the debate generally falling along party lines.

On Wednesday, House members approved a constitutional amendment allowing for a photo ID requirement. Lawmakers then endorsed separate legislation that would implement it. Both measures require another vote before they move to the state Senate.
