AUSTIN A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that Texas voter ID law has a discriminatory effect on minorities.

..

The ruling was a victory, albeit not a sweeping one, for President Barack Obama and minority rights groups. A three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that the Texas law, passed in 2011, violates part of the federal Voting Rights Act.

..

The appellate panel, however, did not accept last years ruling by a federal judge in Texas that the voter ID law is tantamount to an illegal poll tax. Nor did the appellate judges agree with the trial court that the law was passed with the intent to discriminate against minority voters. The panel sent the matter back to the lower court for consideration of ways to fix its discriminatory effects.

..

The intent of this law is to protect the voting process in Texas, and we will continue to defend this important safeguard for all Texas voters.

..

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was less upbeat.

..

I strongly disagree with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, which rejected a portion of that law, he said. Texas voter ID law was passed by the Legislature with the intent of preserving the integrity of the voting process. There was never any intention of preventing anyone from voting who is legally qualified to do so.

..

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said that it is imperative for Texas to have a voter ID law and that the state will continue fighting for the measure.
