Texas State Senators Pass GOP Led Voting Reform Bill That Caused House Dems To Flee

State senators out of Texas have passed the GOP-led voting reform bill on Tuesday following Democrats‘ attempt to leave the state trying to delay the passage of the House’s version of the mesure.

Senate Republicans approved a measure that would tighten voting restrictions in a party-line vote of 18-4, an attempt Democrats have called “Jim Crow 2.0,” reported by Fox News.

The Texas Tribune was the first to announce that eight state Senate Democrats had joined House members in leaving the state for Washington, D.C.

Although a ninth senator is likely to join the group of legislators in the nation’s capital, the Senate maintained a quorum with 22 of its 31 members present, enabling the measure to pass.
