3rd Special Session Bills to Monitor

Note: This post will be updated if and/or when more information becomes available.

UPDATE (9:45pm CDT on August 5): In the past 15 minutes, both the Texas House and Senate have passed the HB1 transportation bill and adjourned sine die.  Unless Rick Perry decides to veto this bill, it looks like the special sessions are OVER.

ORIGINAL
As of this posting (5:40pm CDT on August 5), Rick Perry has NOT put abortion on the call for the 3rd special session.  Should he do so, these are a few of the bills we need to monitor.

  • HB21 (Bill Callegari): Relating to a pregnant woman's completion of a resource awareness session before performance or inducement of an abortion; providing penalties.
  • HB25 (Susan King): Relating to the development of a public education program regarding unexpected pregnancy and a related study concerning legislation affecting abortion.

Senate (view all legislation filed here): 
  • SB17 (Eddie Lucio, Jr.): Relating to a pregnant woman's completion of a resource awareness session before performance or inducement of an abortion; providing penalties.
  • SB20 (Jane Nelson): Relating to the licensing and regulation of hospitals in this state; increasing the amount of administrative penalties assessed or imposed against certain hospitals.
