Texas Politics

Well I knew it. Rick Perry called for another special session, and there's a protest scheduled for Monday. It's going to be harder this time to defeat the bill, since they have 30 days now. Sigh.

In other news, I'm glad my Representative Marc Veasey is suing to try to stop the new Voter ID law. I don't know if he'll succeed, but at least we're not just going to sit still and do nothing. Congress needs to act on getting a new preclearance formula done, but who knows how long that will take? July 4th is coming up and I just hope there will be some reason to celebrate instead of feeling depressed again over how far we have to go.

Well, at least marriage equality is reinstated in California. Congrats to all the happy couples!
