Despite key policy friction, special session may be averted
- Budget, tax cuts, border security still pending

Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
Legislative procedure and Texas' cooling economy are giving lawmakers greater impetus to resolve a Senate-House dispute over the state's next two-year budget before the current session ends June 1. With just three weeks remaining in the session, however, they'll have to work hard and fast to lock in a plan that can withstand the increasingly turbulent economy, fulfill campaign promises and avoid inviting challengers in next year's elections.

Deadlines kicking in at Capitol — make or break time for bills
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
With 19 days left in the 84th Texas Legislature, the first of several House bill deadlines occurs this week. The last House daily calendar with House bills was printed late Tuesday and if a House bill in the Calendars committee wasn't on it, it's dead. Thursday is the last day for regular House bills to be considered on second reading on the House floor. If they don't get a second reading on the House floor by midnight, they're dead.
