Blanco calls for another special session
Blanco wants lawmakers to take a bus tour of the hurricane-ravaged New Orleans area after they convene the session, seeing neighborhoods where homes remain ruined, moldy and crumbling. She plans to give her opening session speech to the Legislature in New Orleans.
Blanco issued the formal agenda Tuesday for the session that must end by Feb. 17. Lawmakers can only debate matters that fall under the governor’s special session agenda, which includes 41 topics.
