The Texas legislature is under the mistaken idea they pass the laws for Texas. They’re wrong. What they do is pass some form of what they want law to be. The law is what the courts say it is, especially the U.S. Supreme Court. The Texas Democrats should go home, vote “no” on the election bill, and if it passes go to the court for a decision as to whether or not the bill passes constitutional muster. Right now it appears some of the Texas Democrats do not understand their role in the overall process.
