What To Know: Republican lawmakers are trying just about everything to get their Democratic counterparts to come back to the state to do their jobs. Speaker Dade Phelan sent a plane to bring them home. Others are trying more creative approaches.

The TPPF Take: Are the Texas Democrats heroes like they keep telling us they are, or are they fighting for a bad cause?

“Democrats, both nationally and in Texas, want to radically remake our election laws, erasing state voter ID laws, making it impossible to verify citizenship for voter eligibility, degrading the quality of voter lists, and dramatically expanding mail-in voting with minimal safeguards against fraudulent ballots,” says TPPF’s Chuck DeVore. “But Texans want their elected lawmakers to work, not walk.”
