Today, April 30th, Republicans passed Senate Bill 455, which allows the Texas Attorney General to get a special three judge panel to preside over lawsuits involving school finance system and redistricting.
It is important to remember that while the law is being reviewed, voters still must show an approved ID to vote.
Acceptable forms of photo ID according to the attorney general's office: Texas driver's license, free Texas election identification card (EIC), Texas personal identification card, Texas license to carry a concealed handgun, U.S. military identification card, U.S. citizenship certificate and a U.S. passport.
Need help obtaining an acceptable form of ID?? Call us at 254.813.5123. We can help.
I am the child of two immigrants. On my first day of kindergarten, I didn’t speak English. It’s because of the dedication and handwork of passionate professional educators that I succeed.
Democrats know we have to do more for our teachers to honor their commitment to our children. With only 40 days left of legislative session, we need to stand up now for our teachers before it’s too late.
Hardworking Texas teachers deserve good pay and a secure retirement. That’s the least we can do for the people who educate our children.

The Hazelwood Act is Texas’ sacred promise to the brave men and women who served to protect our nation and their families. For years, this law has helped thousands of qualifying Texas veterans, their spouses, and the children of veterans receive up to 150 hours of college classes, tuition free.
This program has successfully ensured Texas veterans and their families receive the best higher education. However, currently there is no path forward to finding a solution to fully fund this program this legislative session.
