Lawmakers To Meet In Special Session

The Texas legislature is meeting in special session beginning tomorrow. The first priority on the agenda is school finance reform. Last year, the Texas Supreme Court said the current system was unconstitutional, because it relies too heavily on property taxes. Lawmakers must come up with a new funding system by June 1st, or face a court-mandated freeze on school spending.
