AUSTIN, Texas -- Gov. Rick Perry won't rule out a special session to avert a shutdown of major state agencies, saying there are a "lot of different options" to ensure the Texas Department of Transportation and other agencies remain open.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Perry said he was caught off guard by the Senate's failure to pass measures keeping key agencies operating without interruption, including TxDOT and the Texas Department of Insurance.

The Legislature adjourned Monday without passing the measures.

Senate Republicans said the inaction would require a special session, but Perry - the only official who can call one - remained noncommittal.
