Politics and voting laws
UT Arlington associate professor of political science Allan Saxe was featured in a KTVT/CBS 11
story about Attorney General Eric Holder announcing that he’s asking a
federal court in San Antonio to require the state to get federal
approval or “pre-clearance” before it makes any changes to its voting
laws. Saxe says politics may be at work here – and that the 2014
elections are critical to both President Obama and the Republicans.
Gene Rhea Tucker, a UT Arlington history instructor, is part of a
research team analyzing about 60 well-preserved artifacts recovered from
the "Monterrey shipwreck" more than 4,300 feet under the Gulf of
Mexico, off the coast of Galveston, the Austin American-Statesman reported. Researchers say it is the deepest wreck ever excavated in North America.
