AUSTIN The Capitol was buzzing Friday with talk of Gov. Rick Perry calling a special session to deal with issues like redistricting, school choice and others left pending when the regular session ends Monday.
Perry is the only one who can call lawmakers into special session, and he'll set its agenda if he calls one.
He would not say Friday if that was his plan. We're headed for the end of the session, is all Perry said, though he earlier hinted a special session could occur if lawmakers didn't send him enough tax relief or investment in water infrastructure.
A laundry list of topics is possible for a potential special session agenda, including anti-abortion and pro-gun measures, expressing frustration that they were blocked in the regular session by Democrats, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said.
