GOVERNOR MAKES HURRICANE RELIEF AN EMERGENCY TOPIC

Governor Rick Perry has designated hurricane relief, in the form of financial aid, as an emergency item for this legislative session. Emergency status means that lawmakers may consider the topic immediately rather than wait 60 days, as is the procedure for most legislation.

The emergency item includes “passing legislation and providing money to help local governments and private businesses with hurricane recovery.”
