NPT Capitol: Special session is a go, but it’s unclear as to where

from the Houston Chronicle:

AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday a special legislative session will be necessary to keep alive the state’s transportation and insurance regulatory departments but declined to say whether he also will include the contentious Republican-backed voter identification measure.

“We are to the point now where we can say there will be a special session. When is still a little bit up in the air,” Perry said.

The governor had hoped to avoid a special session to keep intact the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Department of Insurance, as well as three others that were not renewed, but calling lawmakers back to the Capitol proved to be the only option.
