Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the start of the second special session:

"The Texas Legislature is poised to finish its history-making work this year by passing legislation to protect the unborn and women's health, invest in our transportation infrastructure and ensure our justice system is fair but firm. This work will build on the historic steps we took during the 83rd Legislative session, addressing our needs for water, cutting the tax burden on Texans and establishing a new university in South Texas. As we open the second special session, we must remember the people of Texas hired us to do our job, and that's what we must do."
