Texas Supreme Court Allows Arrest Of Absent House Democrats


The Texas Supreme Court is signing off on the arrest of House Democrats absent from the second special session.

On Tuesday, the Court overruled the temporary restraining orders issued by lower courts meant to block the arrest warrants sent out last week. House Speaker Dade Phelan signed 52 warrants empowering law enforcement to bring the Democrats to the state Capitol upon their return to Texas.

The House remains several members short of a quorum needed to conduct business.
