In today's San Antonio Express-News, Peggy Fikac details Straus' approach:
“Legislators know that Texas needs a much more comprehensive approach to funding our growing state's growing transportation needs, and another 30-day special session will not change that,” Straus said. “Until members are free to consider real options, beyond simply shuffling taxes from one purpose to another, we will not find a responsible solution to this issue.”Of course, with this being Joe Straus, one should always be cautious with any talk of "real options."
