Texas - A school finance bill needed to balance the proposed state budget collapsed in the Texas House late last night.

The measure was supposed to relieve the state of about two-billion dollars in obligations to public school districts, but the bill violated parliamentary rules and was killed.

If the legislature cannot produce a balanced budget and pass all of the supporting legislation necessary to fund it, the Governor will be forced to call a special session.
