The Texas Senate passed the elections bill that sent state democrats running for the hills several times. 

Senate Democratic Caucus Chair Carol Alvarado filibustered the bill for 15-hours in attempts to prevent the passage, but the chamber endured and passed the legislation in an 18 to 11 vote Thursday, Just the News reports. 

The attempt came just one day after Dade Phelan, the republican Speaker of the Texas House authorized arrest warrants for the 52 democrats who fled the state to avoid voting in the special legislative session. 

The bill contains “simple, common sense reforms” like preventing 24-hour drive through voting, state Senator Bryan Hughes said.
