Gov. Greg Abbott said he is prepared to arrest Democratic lawmakers upon their return to Texas after they bolted for Washington Monday.

  • The numbers meant the House would not have enough lawmakers in attendance to conduct business and vote on the bill.
  • “Minutes ago, at least 57 letters were delivered to the House general clerk directing the House to lock our voting machines and not unlock them until we provide expressed permission to do so upon our return to the Capitol,” said Chris Turner, the chair of the House Democratic Caucus.
  • The Texas bill would outlaw 24-hour polling places, ban ballot drop boxes used to deposit mail ballots and empower partisan poll watchers.
