Texas Democrats Block Restrictive Voting Rights Bill
A large group of Democrats walked out of the House chamber in Austin late Sunday, preventing a quorum in order to block the final vote on a restrictive voting bill that would cut back polling hours and reduce access to mail-in voting.
Mr. Geren makes a point of order that quorum is not present based on the tally sheet furnished by the voting clerk. A quorum is apparently not present. The point of order is well-taken and sustained. Mr. Geren moves the House’s order to 10 a.m. tomorrow — objections none, so ordered.
