Under House bill 91 a code will be placed on the driver's licenses of felons showing they'd been convicted of certain violent crimes.
On Thursday, the measure passed with a 97 to 46 vote.
The initial bill would have stamped "Convicted Felon" on the licenses of all felons out on probation but the revised version only effects those who were found guilty of murder, rape, kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated battery, aggravated sexual battery or child molestation.
"On some sides it would be a good idea and it would be a bad idea because the officer may judge the person on whatever is placed on their license or whatever," said Thomasville Resident Malaysia Wilson.
The bill will go before the Senate next week.
The code would remain in place for the length of their sentence and while they're out on probation. After they are completely out of the system, the code would be taken off.
