Another day and another budget snag

AUSTIN — No sooner did lawmakers settle one big budget impasse than they confronted another simmering dispute — whether to give customer rebates from a fund originally collected to help those in need with their electricity bills.
The fresh tensions broke out a day after lawmakers advanced two parts of the budget deal — a proposed constitutional amendment to address water needs and a supplemental spending bill that includes $200 million of a $4 billion boost for public schools.
“We have a package deal, and if that deal is scuttled, then we'll have to go into special session on the supplemental (spending bill) and how to come up with over $1.2 billion, $1.3 billion, $1.4 billion in tax cuts,” Dewhurst said.

President Barack Obama on Friday signed legislation to award Congress' highest civilian honor to four girls killed in an Alabama church bombing during the civil rights movement. He called it a tragic loss that "helped to trigger triumph and a more just and equal and fair America."
