My San Antonio: Texas, Minority Groups Agree on Temporary Remedy for Voter ID
"We're very encouraged by this agreement. It provides critical safeguards for voters," said Danielle Lang, a lawyer with the Campaign Legal Center, which is representing U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Fort Worth, in the case. "We would not have agreed to anything that we didn't believe fully protected the citizens of Texas."
Lang noted that lawyers for the minority groups could still file documents later Wednesday asking for the voter ID law to be softened beyond the terms agreed upon with the state.
