Texas Governor Greg Abbott promises announcement 'later this week' concerning special session

On Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he would make an announcement "later this week" as to whether he will call a special session of the state legislature.

"I can tell you this, and that is when it gets to a special session, the time and the topics are solely up to the governor of the state of Texas, and we will be, if we have a special session, convening only on the topics that I choose at the time of my choosing," Abbott said after a bill-signing ceremony in Austin.

"My biggest disappointment, of course, is the sunset bill did not pass. This is something that is incredibly easy to achieve that members could've very easily gotten together and agreed upon but simply was not done," Abbott said.
