6-20-05 AUSTIN (AP) - Governor Rick Perry has called lawmakers back for another special session starting tomorrow because they haven't been able to finalize an agreement on a school funding plan.
Perry's call came today -- the final day of a 30-day session --as lawmakers were still struggling over whether to give final
approval to a 2.4 billion dollar education spending
They had already given up this session on passage of an accompanying property tax relief bill after the House and Senate
couldn't reach a compromise.
Perry says "We have a filibuster that's going to appear to run out the clock this evening."
Perry says the chambers were close to agreements on both bills. He says he hoped the next special session could end quickly. The session does not have to last all 30 days.
