In the news today: Texas Democrats left the state today to deny Republicans a legislative quorum after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called another special session to push through new restrictions on voting. Climate change is here, and the Pacific Northwest is instituting emergency provisions to protect farm workers from record heat.
