Texas Legislature 2021

Beto O’Rourke group gives $600,000 to Texas House Democrats’ stay in Washington, D.C.

Members left Texas about 10 days ago and have said they plan to stay out of state until after the special session ends Aug. 6.

Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, speaks at “Texans Rally for Our Voting Rights” at the Texas Capitol in Austin on May 8, 2021. Critics of SB 7 claim that the legislation suppresses voting rights by limiting and changing state voting procedures.
