Abbott will sign vote on bill Tuesday-NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott will sign the state’s new bill Tuesday at an event in Tyler.

The bill passed Texas legislation after Abbott convened two special meetings this summer. The Democrats killed the bill on two separate occasions, first going out on the penultimate night of the general legislative session and then fleeing to Washington at the start of the first special session.

Enough Democrats finally returned to the Texas House to restore a quorum for the second special session in late August.

Republicans say the new law will secure Texas’ election, while Democrats say it will suppress the vote.
