On Monday, Democrats from the Texas legislature landed in Washington, D.C. to avoid passage of election reforms in the special legislative session scheduled to end August 6. Despite this, the Texas Senate and House remain committed to passing commonsense election reforms that make it easy to vote and hard to cheat.
The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) applauds Senator Bryan Hughes and the Texas State Senate for passing Senate Bill 1 which upholds the integrity of Texas elections. FGA also thanks Texas Representative Andrew Murr and the House members for their continued commitment to these needed reforms.
“The Texas Senate and most of the Texas House Representatives have protected fair and honest Texas elections through their support of these commonsense election reforms,” said Bryan Sunderland, State Government Affairs Director at FGA. “While Texas Democrats call on Congress to federalize elections, many state legislators are standing up for the people they represent against this dangerous rhetoric. With these critical election reforms, it will be easy to vote and hard to cheat in Texas, and the voices of all communities will be preserved.”
