RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Members of a House committee considering a proposed photo identification requirement to vote in North Carolina are scheduled to hear from election and voting experts after listening to comments from the public.

The House Election Committee scheduled a panel discussion Wednesday featuring attorneys and other advocates from national organizations such as the Heritage Foundation and Brennan Center for Justice and North Carolina groups like Democracy North Carolina and the Civitas Institute.

The meeting is the latest step House Republicans said they’d follow on the way toward fashioning and passing a bill by next month. No legislation from the GOP has yet been filed.

Dozens of people spoke Tuesday at a public hearing by the committee that lasted about four hours.
