Tax changes appear headed toward another special session

Tax changes appear headed toward another special session: "Lawmakers expect to vote on a major education spending plan today that could increase the amount of money Central Texas school districts spend on each student by 3 percent to 9 percent and free some districts from sending money to their poorer counterparts.

State leaders, though, failed late Tuesday to reach agreement on the other side of school finance reform: trading lower property taxes for other tax increases. After the special legislative session ends tonight, Gov. Rick Perry probably will call lawmakers back for another session Thursday."
