Gov. Rick Perry today announced he would add transportation funding to the special session call. That means lawmakers will now consider “Legislation relating to the funding of transportation infrastructure projects.”

Perry released this email statement:

“Texas’ growing economy and population demand that we take action to address the growing pressure on the transportation network across the state. As we enjoy the benefits of a booming economy, we have to build and maintain the roads to ensure we sustain both our economic success and our quality of life.”
