Republicans In Texas State House Vote To Support Racism

Last night, under cover of darkness, Briscoe Cain pushed SB7 through the election committee without any public testimony. You have to see this jaw-dropping moment when State Representative Jessica González introduced amendments that specifically would have protected Black and brown people from these racist voter suppression laws. Every single Republican on the committee voted against it. All five of them.

Briscoe Cain, Travis Clardy, Jacey Jetton, Mike Schofield, and Valoree Swanson all stood a stand last night. They support racism. Period.

The TEXAS State Senate pass police reform bills. (SHOCKING! Right?)

This is GREAT news, extremely surprising, but GREAT, all the same. SB 2212 and SB 68, have passed the Senate, both receiving 31-0 votes. These bills will require a police officer to render aid and mandate that cops must intervene or file a report on other cops regarding police brutality. They've both passed the Senate and are on their way to the House.
