A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for Leon, Milam, and Robertson Counties until 5:00am Monday morning. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is on its way to the Brazos Valley and should arrive between 2 and 3 am. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and winds above 50 mph are our main concerns. However, an isolated tornado, especially in our northern counties, cannot be ruled out.
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.
