TheÂ Obama administrationÂ said Thursday that it will ask a federal court to require that Texas receive federal approval before it makes changes to its voting laws, opening up another battle front in the wake of theÂ Supreme CourtÂ ruling last month that struck down a key part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Speaking at theÂ National Urban Leagueâ€™s annual conference in Philadelphia, Attorney GeneralÂ Eric H. Holder Jr.Â said that theÂ Justice DepartmentÂ is asking a federal court in Texas to make the state seek approval from either his office or a federal court before state officials tweak voting laws.
â€œEven asÂ CongressÂ considers updates to the Voting Rights Act in light of theÂ courtâ€™s ruling, we plan, in the meantime, to fully utilize the lawâ€™s remaining sections to ensure that the voting rights of all American citizens are protected,â€Â Mr. HolderÂ said.
