BOISE, Idaho — A revamped version of a proposed law making it a felony for third parties to collect and return multiple ballots to Idaho election officials is headed to the full House for debate and a vote. 

A House panel on Monday approved the bill that has several changes from a bill that was pulled from the House floor earlier this month after debate tilted toward almost certain defeat. 

The new bill changes from two to six the number of ballots a single family member can deliver. It also redefines family to include adopted children. 

More than half of states allow third parties to collect ballots.
