The Texas State House of Representatives has voted to arrest the Democrat members who fled to Washington DC in an effort to block quorum for a legislative session containing bills they do not like.   According to the WSJ, “Texas state House members voted 76-4 to send law enforcement to find and return absent Democrats “under warrant of arrest, if necessary.

However, the Texas State Senate has enough remaining Democrats to conduct legislative business. “A Democratic senator who spoke on condition of anonymity said four Democrats plan to remain in Texas. With 21 senators needed to make quorum, and 18 Republicans in the upper chamber, that would provide more than enough senators to conduct business.” (link)

Meanwhile the fleeing Texas Democrats hold a presser from DC.  WATCH:
