School reform headed for vote

Star-Telegram | 07/20/2005 | School reform headed for vote: "A school reform bill will likely go before the Texas House and Senate for a vote today -- the last day of a special session on education reform -- but the bill can't take effect without crucial companion tax legislation that appears all but dead.

As a result, there likely will not be any definitive school finance reform from this special session.

But Gov. Rick Perry has pledged to call lawmakers back to Austin to try again.

'I think Thursday looks like a good day, but no formal decision has been made because the session has not finished,' Perry spokesman Robert Black said about when the next session might start."
