AUSTIN, Texas -- The Texas House will debate contentious legislation aimed at requiring voters to show ID before casting a ballot.

The bill sparked partisan tensions after being put on the fast track by Gov. Rick Perry and is scheduled to hit the House floor Monday. Republicans say it would combat voter fraud.

Democrats contend the bill is designed to erect hurdles for poor and minority voters who are less likely to have a state-issued ID card.

The legislation has already passed the state Senate.
