Well, good! Holder is gonna pick on Texas first. Well, let's get it on! All the States need to go through this process and get the laws back to where they belong. Let's see how the non-Texan here will respond to this.

Breaking News: DOJ to Ask Court to Reinstate Voting Rights Act in Texas
Holder cites "evidence of intentional racial discrimination" in Rick Perry's state.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday the first step the Justice Department will take to restore the voting rights gutted by a Supreme Court decision neutering a key prong of the Voting Rights Act. In remarks prepared for the National Urban League’s annual conference, Holder announced that the Justice Department “will ask a federal court in Texas to subject the State of Texas to a preclearance regime similar to the one required by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act” — effectively restoring the safeguards against voter suppression in Texas that were stripped by the five Republican justices’ decision in Shelby County v. Holder.
