    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Voting ends Sunday for members of a film and television union on a proposed contract with producers that was reached last month, just as the workers were prepared to go on strike.The tentative three-year agreement with the International Alliance of Theatrical State Employees (IATSE) includes wage increases and provisions for rest periods and meal breaks, but some union members are not happy with it, and are vowing to vote "no."Voting began Friday and polls close at 8:59 p.m. Sunday. Online voting will cover a pair of contract proposals -- the basic agreement and an area standards agreement applying largely to workers outside the Los Angeles area.Combined, the two agreements cover about 60,000 film and TV workers nationwide.The tentative main contract reached in October averted a strike that would've crippled the industry. It includes a 3% pay increase, new protections for meal breaks and rest periods, which would put an end to so-called "Fraturdays," a work period spanning from Friday to Saturday that workers say doesn't allow them enough rest.IATSE's film, TV workers believe vote to ratify...

    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Democrats returned to Texas after a 38-day walkout and Thursday night state Republicans advanced new voting restrictions. It looks like Democrats are out of ways to stop the GOP from rewriting state election laws and enacting a bill that includes a ban on drive-thru voting and would empower poll watchers. READ MORE: Fort Worth ISD School Board Considers Next Step Regarding Mask Mandate The nearly 50-page bill passed the Texas House on a 79-37 mostly party-line vote, moving fast a week after Democrats ended their holdout. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott says he will sign the measure that is on track to reach his desk by early September, if not sooner. In what is now the GOP’s third try at passing the bill since May, the atmosphere was charged. For more than 12 hours Republicans defended the changes as safeguards while Democrats, who offered a raft of rejected attempts to soften the bill, continued to say it would disproportionately impact people of color. At one heated point Republican Dade Phelan, the House speaker, interrupted lawmakers to tell them not...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republicans late Thursday advanced new voting restrictions after months of protests by Democrats, who are all but out of ways to stop sweeping changes that include banning 24-hour voting and giving partisan poll watchers more protections. The nearly 50-page bill passed the Texas House on a 79-37 mostly party-line vote, a week after Democrats ended a 38-day walkout that had prevented Republicans from moving forward. In what is now the GOP’s third attempt since May to get the bill to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, the atmosphere was charged. The GOP says the bill will ensure election integrity, but Democrats say it amounts to voter suppression for disabled people and minorities. During debate Thursday, Republican Dade Phelan, the House speaker, interrupted lawmakers to tell them not to accuse each other of racism — or even say the word. But in the end, the bill passed, just as Democrats knew it would once their holdout ended and they returned. Texas is now set to become the latest big GOP state to pass tighter voting laws in response...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The sudden end of Texas Democrats’ 38-day walkout has put Republicans back on a fast track to pass a sweeping voting bill and is causing rifts among some Democrats who said Friday they felt “betrayed” by colleagues who returned to the state Capitol. Texas is the last big GOP-controlled state that has not passed more restrictive voting laws driven by former President Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. But it is now likely only a matter of weeks after enough Democratic lawmakers ended their holdout Thursday to restore a quorum — by the slimmest of margins — in the state House of Representatives. It broke a stalemate that brought the Texas Capitol to a standstill, and already Republicans are working fast to advance a sweeping bill to the House floor as early as Monday. The collapse of Democrats’ holdout frustrated a faction that appeared ready to torpedo the bill for a third time in Texas, even though a commanding GOP majority in the Texas statehouse made it unlikely that Democrats...
    Three Texas state lawmakers have returned to Austin, effectively ending a 38-day walkout by Democrats hoping to stall a GOP-sponsored election bill. Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan declared just after 7 p.m. on Thursday that the legislature had reached a quorum, allowing lawmakers to begin voting again. There were still 49 absences on Thursday night, but with 99 total legislators in the House, there were enough members present for a quorum, according to the Texas Tribune. The House then adjourned until 4 p.m. Monday. This was Republicans' second attempt to call a special session of the legislature. Since Republicans hold the majority, Democrats stalled the vote on the elections bill by walking out of the regular session in May. Then, more than 50 Democrats fled the state at the start of the special session, denying the Republicans a quorum to vote.  Several Democrats had already returned for the special session, and on Thursday night, state Representatives Garnet Coleman, Ana Hernandez and Armando Walle issued a statement about their return.  The U.S. and Texas state flags fly outside the state Capitol...
    (CNN)Texas House Democrats have ended their historic quorum break, undertaken to block restrictive voting legislation, which now paves the way for a Republican-backed election overhaul bill to pass in the Lone Star State.In a surprising turn of events, at least three new Democrats returned to the floor. That brought the total number to the required two-thirds of members present for a quorum. Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan, a Republican, announced a quorum was present just after 6 p.m. local time, and the Senate messenger dropped off a slew of bills passed already in this special session by the Senate, which were quickly referred to committees for action. The special session ends early next month.It's the first time the Texas House has reached quorum in 37 days, meaning it is also the first time any legislative business can begin in the House during the second called special session. The Texas House rules require a quorum to be present before conducting any state legislative business. Democratic Reps. Garnet Coleman, Ana Hernandez and Armando Walle released a joint statement explaining their return to...

    A Texas state senator ended a 15-hour filibuster Thursday in the Democrats' latest defiance over a new voting legislation, but it only delayed Republicans who went on to approve the sweeping elections bill just minutes after she wearily left the floor. The GOP's sustained efforts to tighten Texas' election laws, however, remained no closer to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott's desk than a month ago. Democrats are still refusing to show up in the state House of Representatives in a standoff that has now dragged on for 32 days, preventing the Senate bill from going any further. Democrat Carol Alvarado began speaking shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday even though she acknowledged that the filibuster would not block the legislation in the Senate. She was required to remain standing and speaking, was prohibited from taking bathroom breaks and wore running shoes on the Senate floor, just as former Texas legislator Wendy Davis did in 2013 when she filibustered a sweeping anti-abortion bill. "What’s wrong with drive-thru voting during a pandemic? What’s wrong with 24-hour voting? Why can’t we have expanded voting hours...
    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A Texas state senator continued her filibuster into Thursday morning, but after more than 15 hours Senator Carol Alvarado ended her effort to rally against Senate Bill 1, the GOP bill that man y say would place would disproportionately suppress ballots from minorities and disabled voters. Alvarado, a Democrat, began her filibuster shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday by speaking indefinitely, although she admitted that was unlikely to stop the bill from passing. She was right — it passed just minutes after she left the floor. READ MORE: Company Breaks Ground On New Medical Cannabis Production Facility In Texas Requirements for the filibuster meant Alvarado had to remain standing and speaking, could not take any bathroom breaks or drink water. In the latest tactic to extend the nation’s most visible standoff over voting rights, Alvarado wore a back brace and running shoes as she mounted the filibuster. 15 hrs ago I stood to filibuster #SB1 & give a voice to the constituents who this bill attempts to silence.

    (CNN)The Texas state Senate passed Senate Bill 1, an election overhaul bill that would add new restrictions and criminal penalties to the voting process, Thursday morning on a 18-11 party line vote. The final vote was taken fewer than 20 minutes after a 15-hour filibuster of the bill from state Sen. Carol Alvarado concluded. Alvarado, wearing a back brace for support, spoke on the bill for 15 hours and four minutes on her feet without sitting, leaning, eating, drinking or using the restroom -- in accordance with Texas rules.The Houston Democrat concluded her filibuster, surrounded by several of her colleagues who took turns asking questions throughout the night, on the Texas Senate floor just before 9 a.m. CT. The filibuster itself was mostly symbolic, as there are more than 20 days that remain in the second special session. Alvarado acknowledged on the floor that she would not be able to stop the bill but told the Texas Tribune she wanted to "call attention to what is at stake".
