Gov. Greg Abbott announced a special session of the Texas Legislature starting July 8.
The June 22 announcement did not specify what legislative priorities will be included in the agenda but said the items “will be announced prior to the convening of the special session.”
Along with the announced July session, the legislature is still expected to reconvene in the fall to redraw the state’s congressional and legislative district boundaries.
Recently, The Dallas Morning News reported that Abbott said he wants lawmakers to address agenda items one by one, which could potentially lead to separate sessions.
