Senators Say School Finance May Take Two Sessions

State Senators say all proposed revenue sources, including video gambling and a payroll tax, are on the table as they begin tackling school finance.

Senators spent much of Thursday meeting behind closed doors with Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, who presides over the Senate. Wednesday, the State House approved what its leaders call a" bare-bones" finance bill. The House version would increase the state sales tax and add a dollar tax on a pack of cigarettes.

The current special session ends May 19th, but senators say they are prepared to stay for a second session if necessary.
