The one known threat of a special session has just been dramatically reduced.
House members today approved the conference committee report shoring up a fund supporting hail and windstorm insurance coverage for coastal property-owners.
Assuming the Senate similarly OK's the legislation, it'll go to Gov. Rick Perry, whose threat to call a summer special session if lawmakers didn't address the windstorm topic helped kick-start negotiations about 10 days ago.
Sen. Troy Fraser, R-Horseshoe Bay, said a moment ago he expects Senate approval tonight. Referring to previous efforts to amend the windstorm law, Fraser said: "This represents six years of work, so we're excited."
