Senate Majority Leader Meets With Texas Legislators

Discusses voting rights with protesting state

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he would be meeting with members of the Texas legislature that have gone to Washington. The 50 state representatives exited Texas so that there would be no quorum for the special legislative session called by Governor Greg Abbott intended to update the state’s voting laws. The Texas governor has pledged to arrest these legislators upon their return to the state.

From the floor of the U.S. Senate, Majority Leader Schumer called the Texas legislation dangerous and said it was ”one of the most restrictive laws in the nation.” He was supportive of the state legislators who had left Texas, saying, ”They are brave, they are bold, they are courageous and history will show them on the side of right.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Governor Abbott in handling the situation with the state legislators.
  • That Senator Schumer would seek God’s guidance in how to respond to the Taxes legislators. 
  • That God would lead Congress to protect voting rights for all Americans.
