Texas’ new heartbeat law went into effect September 1, and as Twitchy reported September 7, Portland’s city council had decided to ban all trade with and city-paid travel to Texas in retaliation. Now, a day later, Mayor Ted Wheeler is announcing that the city council is postponing that decision so they can “best understand the impact of this important decision.”

The response from Texans yesterday made it pretty clear they’re not concerned about cutting economic ties with Portland.

Great idea!
