So if you lose your birth certificate, like if your house burns down or floods, you have to spend more money to get a replacement birth certificate. An obvious ploy to suppress voting. Last time I checked with Missouri, it would cost me $35 to get a copy of my birth certificate, and there have been times in my life when I couldn't afford it. People who are illegal will just get fake documents.
New Georgia driver's license rules might slow renewals

Lines moved slowly Friday at Georgia’s Department of Driver Services offices, where new statewide rules took effect this week requiring everyone renewing a license to provide documents to prove their identity and address.
Under the new rules, customers applying for or renewing a driver’s license must go to a Department of Driver Services office in person and present an original or certified birth certificate, Social Security card and two documents proving where they live. That requirement was already in place for people applying for their first license, but rules that took effect July 1 extend that requirement to renewals.
