Toll road moratorium in limbo

HB1892, the toll road moratorium vehicle that was sent to Governor Perry despite his veto threat and warnings of a special session, will be officially vetoed today. HB792, the compromise toll road moratorium that's supposed to mollify Perry while still slowing down the Trans Texas Corridor, was supposed to be passed out of the House today but has been delayed till Monday. Which leaves it vulnerable to a Perry veto if he chooses to be a hardhead about it, but that's how it goes. Ben Wear and Eye on Williamson have the details.

UPDATE: As expected, Perry vetoes HB1892. Via EOW, who notes that Perry hasn't said he'd sign HB792.
