The Texas Senate passed new voting legislation on April 1. As the bill goes through the state House, corporations like Dell Technologies and American Airlines -- both based in Texas -- have started advocating against it, arguing that it restricts voter access. [Source]
Like many other GOP-controlled states, Florida has made it even harder to vote, passing a bill to curb access to mail-in voting, implement stricter ID requirements and limit the use of ballot drop-boxes. While signing the bill into law last Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis -- barring all Florida press and making the bill signing event a Fox News exclusive -- cooed that this was an achievement for voting "integrity and transparency."
Republicans in key states intensified their push to roll back access to the ballot this week -- with the GOP-led Texas House passing new voting limits Friday, a day after Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law an array of new restrictions in his state.
