Thirty calendar days--the session ends June 26.

According to 'Quorum Report,' these are the issues to be added:

"Legislation relating to est. a mandatory sentence of life with parole for a capital felony committed by a 17 y/o offender"

"Legislation relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers, and facilities."

Re: Just a Question?

That's an interesting question. I'm not sure whether the powers assumed by the lieutenant governor when the governor is out of state include the power to call or add to a special session. Of course, since Perry isn't leaving until Sunday, this is probably a moot point--that would leave only ten days (or less) to address any issues added by Dewhurst.

On a related note, there are rumors brewing that Perry is about to add more issues to the call. Whether any of those issues relate to firearms remains to be seen.
