MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Former Minnesota Gov. Arne Carlson is concerned about what the Voter ID amendment would mean if passed.

Carlson said he hopes the Minnesota Supreme Court will strike down the amendment.
He called it dangerous and expensive.
“This is a huge multi-million dollar unfunded mandate that is shifted to the local government, plus the millions of dollars the state will have to spend to send out these voter ID cards,” he said.
The Minnesota Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments on the matter in July.
