The third special session this year for the Texas Legislature is over. The State House and Senate adjourned early Tuesday morning after a busy final few hours. According to the Texas Tribune, lawmakers approved the redistricting map for the next decade and finalized the spending plan for about 13-billion dollars in federal COVID relief funds. Governor Abbott had also asked the legislature to pass a ban on COVID vaccine mandates by all employers in Texas, but the bill stalled in the chamber.
