Clock Ticks, Still No School Finance Plan

For state officials it's down to the last hours.
Monday's deadline looms and state legislators have yet to settle on a new school funding plan.
The legislative session ends Monday, but bills must be considered before midnight Sunday.
Governor Rick Perry's idea to overhaul the states tax system failed Friday.
State Senator Kevin Eltife said he expects the state budget to be adopted but does not believe the school funding issue will be settled.
He said with a set budget, legislators could revisit the funding issue in August without calling a special session.
