So far, no mention of the Bathroom Bill by @DanPatrick. Even though he said it was a major reason for forcing a special session.
So, @DanPatrick just accused @SpeakerStraus of "laying the groundwork" for the creation of a state income tax. #SpecialSession

Ok, that's it. See y'all back July 18th. @GovAbbott says if these don't pass it will NOT be because of a lack of time. He took no q's.
Maternal mortality task force is next on the call. Get ready @AshLopezRadio
Mail ballot fraud also on the call. I've lost count on where we are on the list of 19 special session items. #txlege
And the bathroom bill is back too. Along with new anti-abortion laws. #txlege
@GovAbbott says he's signed anti-texting and driving bill. But wants special session bill to revoke all local mobile phone regulations.
This seems like a list of Senate bills that the TX House didn't pass. #txlege
Now on to a bit of Austin bashing. @GovAbbott wants state-wide permitting rules for construction. Calls out Austin specifically.
Property taxes up next on @GovAbbott's special session call. Including law to reduce growth in state and local spending to pop&inflation
Special education school voucher plan also up this summer.
He also calls for an overhaul on school finance-including bill to create school finance commission.
Items include $1,000 teacher pay raise. Says the legislature can do it without additional funds.
@GovAbbott will then add 19 items to the call once sunset is done.
Special session starts July 18th. Sunset schedule up first. He says "unfortunately it was used as political fodder"
@GovAbbott starts press conference talking about his emergency items that did pass this session. https://t.co/ROUosSLUwp
Or maybe we'll get a curveball and get no session.....
Sunset scheduling would be the reason for a possible session. But property taxes and "bathroom bill" could be a focus too.
@GovAbbott is about to let us know if there will be a special session. https://t.co/pUU4wrB2Ch
