AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Gov. Rick Perry says it's possible he'll add the hot-button issue of reshaping the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association to a special legislative session he's convened on redistricting.
The association is the state's property insurer of last resort for people living on the coast. It has been in serious financial trouble for years, mostly because of lawsuits filed after Hurricane Ike.
Perry called lawmakers back immediately after they finished their 140-day regular session Monday. He wants approval of new voting maps, but also could give the Legislature more to do.
On Friday, Perry said it was premature to add items to the agenda. But when asked specifically about the association, he said it was possible he might add it.
Perry said he likely won't add items without first checking with lawmakers.
