Gov. Rick Perry announced there will be a second special session in an attempt to pass a sweeping Texas style abortion ban. It’s back to the drawing board for the SB5 bill. Evidently Wendy Davis pissed him off, and he will NOT allow a woman to thwart the GOP plan to take away a woman’s right to choose!!!
“Misplaced priorities of legislative leaders squandered a tremendous opportunity to make much needed improvements in our transportation infrastructure and help create good jobs and bring businesses to Texas. Despite urging by responsible members of the Senate to bring up the matter of transportation, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst derailed as much as much as $1 billion per year in transportation funding by stubbornly pushing divisive, failed legislation attacking women’s health care options.
If leaders are serious about using this second called special session to improve the lives of Texans by repairing and expanding our transportation networks, they will find no greater ally than me. If they intend to keep pushing their extreme personal political agenda ahead of the interests of Texas families, I will not back off of my duty to fight on their behalf.”
