Texas Lawmakers Rush To Pass Final Bills Before Session Ends Monday
Today is the final day of the Texas Legislature for this session. Lawmakers worked over the weekend to get some bills ready for approval. There was consensus on Friday that the one bill they had to pass was the state's two-year budget.
The final gavel comes down on the state legislature today, as Texas lawmakers end their five-month session. Legislators had 140 days to move on key pieces of legislation, but needed a final working weekend to get for some of the more controversial bills across the finish line.
