Inside Texas Politics: Latest COVID-19 relief bill brings millions in support for Texas cities

Democrats took just 50 days to pass the latest COVID relief bill. It is a major policy accomplishment, and it’s massive. The bill is not as big as the $2 trillion one passed with bipartisan support last year. But this one still means financial support for Texans and Texas cities. Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher represents parts of west and northwest Houston.

There’s a new surge of migrants coming across the Texas-Mexico border. The situation is forecast to only grow worse in the coming months. Next week, a group from Congress is traveling there to see it first-hand. What sparked this latest surge? Congressman Henry Cuellar is a Democrat whose district runs from San Antonio and Laredo down to McAllen.

Texas Republicans are pushing ahead with legislation for their base. A bill filed on Friday would clean up the voter rolls and tighten up rules around mail ballots. State Senator Bryan Hughes, a Republican from Mineola in East Texas, is behind those bills and one that would let Texans sue social media companies.
