Just Another Try

This should be no surprise but Rick Perry says he will call the Legislature back to Austin for a special session on school finance before the end of the month.

"My prediction is that after these members get home and spend some time with their constituents, they'll hear about school finance ... and we'll come back between now and the end of June," the governor said Wednesday during a stop in Tyler to sign bills passed during the recently completed session.

The Legislature wasn't able to restructure the Texas tax system to pay for public education, which was a priority in the session after a judge ordered the state to fix funding problems.
