Time runs out on Legislature

DallasNews.com | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "Most legislators were relieved to see the gavels come down in the House and the Senate, marking the end of their 140-day session. But many were worried about what lies ahead in the rocky terrain of school finance and what voters will think about their inaction on the issue.

'I can't tell you how angry I am,' said Rep. Dan Branch, R-Dallas. 'My constituents were expecting school finance reform, property tax reform and Robin Hood reform – and we couldn't deliver on any of it.'

It didn't help that the leaders of the two chambers – Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Tom Craddick – were sharply at odds over their respective plans and who's to blame."
