AUSTIN, Texas -- The Texas Legislature has adjourned a two-day special session.

Two of the issues assigned to them by Gov. Rick Perry were adopted before Thursday's adjournment. The third, a measure that would allow the state to continue contracting for privately built toll roads, never made it out of committee.

They passed a bill to keep five important state agencies operating for the next two years and a measure authorizing the state to spend $2 billion in bonds to build new roads.

The road bonds were already approved by voters statewide in 2007, but the Legislature still needed to authorize the spending.
