But that's in a single section of the Act, section 5. If they wanted to repeal only that, shouldn't they simply refer to said section? They clearly said that the Act is the thing they want repealed (and not reauthorized to boot), but that means African-Americans and other minorities would be discriminated in the voting act, since their right to vote freely is part of that Act.
I'll try to see if there's any update by the Texan GOP about that part, just to be sure.
