Perry, Texas Legislature to honor fallen soldiers
May 25, 2013 08:12 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Gov. Rick Perry is addressing a joint session of the Legislature to honor Texans killed in combat.
Lawmakers from both chambers will crowd onto the House floor Saturday to join relatives of those fallen for a tearful tribute to soldiers from the state killed on the battlefield.
It will be a solemn start to a busy -- perhaps even frantic -- final weekend of the 140-day legislative session, which ends Monday.
Perry has not commented on whether he will call lawmakers back to work for a special session to tackle unfinished business.
But settling disputed voting maps is likely to keep the Legislature working until June.
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who oversees the Senate, also has said he'd like more time to revive tighter abortion restrictions and looser gun laws.
