#TXLEGE: Abbott attempting to weasel out of a special session....


"For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light."
Luke 8:17

Isn't THIS typical....
Gov. Greg Abbott's announcement on whether he will call a special session is not expected to happen before next week.

On Monday, Abbott said he would share his verdict "later this week." On Friday, his office said he would not make the announcement Friday or over the weekend.

....

Asked Wednesday morning about a special session, Abbott said he was waiting for the budget to be certified and wanted to go through more bills on his desk. Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced Thursday evening he had certified the budget.
Now, we will confess that punting this discussion into next week will allow us to resolve a few personal errands that we'd put off during the session, but this isn't about this author's personal convenience.

Abbott's move is designed to stall in the hope that grassroots attention moves elsewhere, and is thus unacceptable.

Bottom Line: It's not surprising, but it is revealing.
