Chaos breaks out over voter ID bill
AUSTIN (AP) — Democrats barely blocked consideration of a voter identification bill Tuesday, scraping up enough votes only after a shouting match over whether a key senator’s vote was counted and the just-in-time appearance of a senator with tile stomach flu.
Under Senate rules, two-thirds of the chamber, or 21 senators, must agree to bring a bill up for debate. Democrats hold 11 seats, just enough to block legislation from being considered if they vote together.
Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Hous-ton, said in March that all 11 Democrats had committed to blocking the bill requiring voters to produce photo identification or two other forms of non-photo identification at a
Their solidarity meant Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst had to wait weeks to even try to bring up the measure the I louse passed in mid-April.
He got his chance on Tuesday, when Democratic Sen Carlos Uresti stayed home with the flu.
The Democrats seemed surprised when Dewhurst brought the bill up right after the morning prayer and the introduction of the doctor of the day. Major legislation usually is not considered first.
They revolted after the original 19-9 vote was revealed, loudly arguing that Sen. John Whitmire’s no vote wasn’t counted even though he was in the chamber.

Visitation will begin at 8
a.m. Wednesday at the Zoeller Funeral Home and continue until 11:30 a.m. Friday. A rosary will be recited Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the Zoeller Funeral Home chapel.

DALLAS (AP) — Latino activists and civil liberties advocates asked a federal judge Tuesday to block a voter-approved ordinance that would prohibit landlords from renting apartments to most illegal immigrants in die Dallas suburb of Farmers Branch.
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the American Civil Liberites Union, which already have sued the city over the regulation, asked for the temporary restraining order in U.S. District Court. A group of merchants also suing Farmers Branch in federal court filed a separate request Tuesday to stop the ordinance’s enforcement, said activist Carlos Quintanilla.
“It is unfortunate that the residents of Fanners Branch have chosen to implement a law which is not only bad pol
icy, but is likely also unconstitutional," said Usa Graybill, legal director for the ACLU of Texas. “Now the issue will have to be resolved in federal court.”
The ACLU and MALOFF contend poor families could be thrown out of homes because of the ordinance. And, the groups say, families in which some people are undocumented and others are citizens or legal immigrants could be forced to either move or split up.
Matthew Boyle, an attorney representing Fanners Branch, said the request for the restraining order isn t surprising and that the city is preparing a response.
“I think they’re wasting their time. I think we have legal grounds ... moral grounds,” councilman Ben Robinson said of the groups’ request.
House votes to put restrictions on Mexican trucks
WASHINGTON (AP) —The Flouse voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to delay a Bush administration plan to allow Mexican trucks full access to U.S. highways.
The trucks would have to be declared safe first, the lawmakers said, and Mexico would have to give U.S. truckers the same access south of the border.
The House voted 411-3 to approve a three-year Department of Transportation pilot program that would restrict opening the border to IOO carriers based in Mexico. They would be allowed to use a maximum of 1,000 vehicles under the pilot program.
The Bush administration wanted to start a pilot program this year that would run for a year before fully opening the border to Mexican trucks.
The House bill, however, specifies criteria for the pilot program before it can start,
including setting up an independent panel to evaluate the test program and getting certification from the inspector general that safety and inspection requirements have been met.
The Department of Transportation says it could be as late as 2008 before Congress’s criteria are met, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Lawmakers said their major concern is whether Mexican trucks, often older than U.S. cargo vehicles, and Mexican drivers will be able to meet rigorous U.S. safety standards.
“We do not need 90,000-
pound unguided missiles on our highways,” said Rep. Robin Hayes, R-N.C.
American trucking companies have spent years getting their vehicles up to the T rans
portation Department standards, lawmakers said. Letting Mexican trucks across the border without making them meet those standards is wrong, they said.
