GovRickPerryAUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry this week announced another Special Session of the Texas Legislature will begin at 2 p.m. Monday, July 1.  

“I am calling the Legislature back into session because too much important work remains undone for the people of Texas. Through their duly elected representatives, the citizens of our state have made crystal clear their priorities for our great state. Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn. Texans want a transportation system that keeps them moving. Texans want a court system that is fair and just. We will not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do.    

The special session will consider the following issues:

• Legislation relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers and facilities.

• Legislation relating to the funding of transportation infrastructure projects.  

• Legislation relating to establishing a mandatory sentence of life with parole for a capital felony committed by a 17-year-old offender.
