Abbott signs into law sweeping Texas voting reform legislation, court challenges next
The bill was drafted by the GOP-led Texas legislature.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed into law a GOP-led bill that includes some of the most comprehensive voting-reform measures in the country.
State Democratic lawmakers had for months attempted to block the passage of the bill, even leaving the state to keep their Republican counterparts from having enough Assembly members to hold a vote.
Even before Abbott's signing, several groups, largely liberal leaning, opposed the new restrictions on mail-in voting and other balloting and mounted court challenges
