Federal Appeals Court Upholds Texas Voter ID Law

A federal appeals court is upholding a Texas voter ID law.  A panel from the New Orleans-based  5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the law requiring a photo ID,  reversing a lower court decision.  In a 2-1 ruling today, the panel said  the new legislation contained "improvements for disadvantaged minority  voters."  Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton hailed the  decision as one that will help prevent voter fraud.  Democrats attempted  to block the measure claiming it's discriminatory.
