Texas lawmakers approve bills aimed squarely at Harris County elections

On Monday, the Texas House passed two bills aimed squarely at Harris County elections. The House’s version of Senate Bill 1750 abolishes the office of Harris County elections administrator. SB 1933 allows the Texas Secretary of State to impose “administrative oversight” during an election.

While the latter doesn’t specify Harris County, News 88.7’s politics and government reporter Andrew Schneider says its stipulations are based directly on what the county has done in recent election cycles.
