AUSTIN, Texas -- The House has passed a bill to keep a few important state agencies operating.

The measure has already been approved by the Senate and will next head to Gov. Rick Perry for his signature.

The unanimously approved bill will keep the Texas Department of Transportation, the Department of Insurance and three other agencies going for another two years.

State law requires the Legislature regularly review and reauthorize state agencies. Lawmakers failed to renew those agencies during the regular session that ended June 1.

Perry called them back to Austin to deal with that and to address transportation contracts and funding.
