Texas Special Session Adjourns Sine Die
The Texas Legislature ended its special legislative session abruptly Tuesday night without a resolution on Gov. Greg Abbott’s top priority of property tax reform.
The House adjourned earlier in the day leaving the Senate to accept their version of the property tax reform bill or not pass one. The Senate did not accept the House version and the session ended without fanfare.
Some Senators are calling for Gov. Abbott to call a second special session solely for the issue.
About half of the session’s 20-item agenda was accomplished, including the passage of several sunset bills.
