Should There Be A Special Session [POLL]

Texas Legislators are trying to wrap up the session and budget before the weekend deadline. First though they must agree on a budget. Will it happen soon or should lawmakers wait for a special session? This from the Texas Tribune:

The bill was considered critical as the prospective “vehicle” for lawmakers’ plans to disperse money to school districts over the next two years. But last night, the House balked at adopting the school finance proposal attached to the bill by Senate Education Chairwoman Florence Shapiro, R-Plano, or either of two competing proposals from their own education leaders, Rep. Rob Eissler, R-The Woodlands, and Rep. Scott Hochberg, D-Houston.

That meltdown happened as members came face to face with the projections of how much their local districts would individually bear the $4 billion reduction in state public education funding. And it means that any changes to state funding formulas will happen in a conference committee over SB 1811, the broad fiscal matters bill that’s already cleared both chambers. Or, of course, in a special session. The governor is among the optimists who think lawmakers will finish their work without going into overtime.

Should their be a special session? Vote and comment below.
