AUSTIN, Texas (KTRE) - A bill authored by an East Texas legislator which would require the disclosure of the ownership interest of voting devices has been signed into law.

Gov. Greg Abbott signed HB 1397, authored by Rep. James White (R-Hillister) on Friday. The law goes into effect on Sept. 1.

In a previous interview, White compared the situation to military equipment and that it is important to know who the owners and manufacturers are.
