AG Paxton Leads Eight-State Coalition to Protect the Unborn

AG Paxton Files Brief in 5th Circuit Defending Texas’ Voter ID Law
“The plaintiffs cannot identify a single person who faces a substantial burden to voting under this reasonable-impediment exception,” Attorney General Paxton wrote. “As the 5th Circuit panel noted, each of the 27 voters identified in the record – whose testimony underlies plaintiffs’ claims – can now vote without photo ID. Accordingly, the case should be over.”

“It’s fitting that the Supreme Court hear this case, given that it ordered the district court in San Antonio to draw the congressional maps in 2012 that were adopted by the Legislature in 2013 and used in the last three election cycles in Texas,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The lower court’s decision to invalidate parts of the maps it drew and adopted is inexplicable and indefensible. We’re eager for the high court to take up the case.”

“Eight years of federal government overreach and disregard for the rule of law during the Obama-era created an environment of regulatory uncertainty and fostered burdensome regulations that hurt the economy,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Passing the Regulatory Accountability Act will introduce more regulatory stability and produce smarter and more efficient rulemaking, which will ultimately reduce costs, create jobs, and grow the economy.”
