Texas Legislature 2021

Protesters who obstruct emergency vehicles could face felony charges under bill passed by Texas House

The bill is in response to nationwide protests against police brutality last year.

Demonstrators block traffic and march past vehicles on I-35 during a protest against police violence in Austin on May 31, 2020. Police later used teargas to disperse crowds on the interstate.
