    How Does A Filibuster Stop A Bill From Passing? I know a filibuster is when somebody wastes time talking about nothing so a bill doesn’t get to the senate floor to vote. But everybody online is saying that what Texas just did is illegal because they aren’t allowed to vote on it after Wendy Davis filibusters. Why not? I thought it was just a time-waster and people could vote later? I read a post that says that it is illegal for the Texas Senate to vote on the bill for another two years because that’s the next time they meet. Why is the Texas senate only meeting every two years?

    “she can continue talking about abortion until 11:59 tonight, the bill won’t reach Governor Perry, and they would have to start all over with the bill next time they meet- 2 years from now.”
    ^ That’s what I read

    Give me straight up facts because I actually want to know this kind of stuff about government. Don’t be biased just based off this whole Wendy Davis thing, because this is what I’m using it learn about government in general. I know Ran Paul recently filibustered also.
    Thanks jacara. Perfect answer
    Weird because everyone on Tumblr is so fired up about this. Literally every single post is about this and on yahoo answers, I am the only one.

      Some states only call the State Senate for special sessions, otherwise they only meet once a year or every two years. This was a Special Session, that was called for 30 days, this is the 29 day of the 30 days, and if no vote is taken then the bill in question has to wait 2 years before it can be considered again under TX Senate Law.

      Edit: They can call a Special Session to attempt to change the Senate rules but that is notoriously hard to do in TX.

      NY is also this way with Special Session regarding its State Constitution, if they say wanted to remove the Marriage equality from their constitution, they have to assemble a Special Session, and there is a minimum wait of 2 years for that.

    Why Do So Many Texans Talk About Liberty, But Astonished That Sen. Wendy Davis Filibusters? This one strikes me odd. I know where these foolish religious people like to make their religious beliefs the state laws, except if it Muslim-based, and then accuse the U.S. Government of taking liberties and rights away from citizens. Then try to pass state laws to make it harder to get abortions, and then shocked a Democrat is filibustering.

    Maybe it’s time for all these Texas Conservatives to rip off their Don’t Thread on Me bumper stickers and worry about their own damage to liberty.

    Proud Texan – Go Wendy!

    Would The U.S. Senate The Better Off If Adopted The Filibuster Rules Of The Texas Senate? Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is currently attempting a 13-hour filibuster

    The Texas Senate’s rules are pretty strict: No sitting, leaning, or using a desk or chair in any way; no eating or drinking. No bathroom breaks. Objections can be raised if a speaker does not confine his or her remarks to the issue under consideration or if his or her voice is inaudible.
