Perry considering veto on budget item

Perry considering veto on budget item: "Gov. Rick Perry is threatening to veto the budget for public schools in Texas as a way to force lawmakers to agree on reforms to the beleaguered school finance system, as a prelude to calling the Legislature into a special session beginning Tuesday.

Five sources with knowledge of the ongoing negotiations between Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Tom Craddick confirmed today that the governor by Saturday will decide whether to use his veto power to jump-start the inability of the Legislature so far to agree on a compromise reform plan."
