As the Texas Legislature considers Republican-sponsored bills that would impose new limits on voting, the leaders of five Am Law 100 firms founded in Texas have signed or plan to sign a statement denouncing voter disenfranchisement.

The leaders of the five Am Law 100 firms founded in Texas join leaders of dozens of other law  firms, as well as a number of current and former general counsel who are speaking out in the wake of a new law in Georgia that critics say disenfranchises voters. Meanwhile, there are ongoing efforts in Texas and elsewhere to pass “voter integrity” legislation that has received similar criticism.
