Texas abortion bill misses deadline

USA Today: A vote on a Texas bill that would severely curtail abortion rights in the state descended into chaos in the early hours of Wednesday morning as lawmakers said the final vote missed a midnight deadline.

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said Republicans missed their deadline to pass new abortion restrictions after protesters screamed down lawmakers as the final 15 minutes passed before the special legislative session’s deadline. Dewhurst said on Wednesday morning that the abortion bill did not pass.
