Perry takes his school finance plan on the road | News for Denton, Texas | AP: Texas: "Gov. Rick Perry took his school finance reform plan on the road Thursday, urging Texans to pressure lawmakers to solve the problem that has plagued the state for years.

A 30-day special legislative session on school finance began Tuesday, and Perry has offered a plan that he says would give homeowners $7 billion in property tax relief and inject $5 billion in new funding into public schools over the next two years.

'Texans have heard enough talk from Austin. Now they expect results,' the Republican governor told dozens of employees and supporters at a homebuilder's showroom. 'They want to see action, and they want to see leadership.'"
