WASHINGTON (Reuters) – American Airlines said on Thursday that it strongly opposes legislation passed by the Texas state Senate to limit voting access.

“We must stand up for the rights of our team members and customers who call Texas home, and honor the sacrifices made by generations of Americans to protect and expand the right to vote,” the Texas-based airline said in a statement.

The legislation, which the state Senate passed early on Thursday and is now set to come before the state House of Representatives, would eliminate drive-through voting, limit polling site hours and give partisan poll watchers more autonomy.
