Perry Orders $700 Million Paid To Schools

Republican Governor Rick Perry ordered the release of $700 million in state aid to schools, which means the Foundation School Program payments won't be delayed until September.

A glitch during the 2003 Legislature meant clarifying legislation was needed. Perry says the executive order is necessary because of the walkout by senators.

Spokeswoman Kathy Waltlater says the governor is acting under provisions of the Texas Constitution.
