AUSTIN, Texas (AP) A Texas House committee is expected to hear testimony on a bill that would put greater restrictions on abortions.
The House State Affairs Committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday afternoon, one day after the Legislature convened for a second special session.
The bill was already heard during the regular and first special sessions. Republican Chairman Byron Cook of Corsicana says he will cut testimony off at midnight.
A hearing 10 days ago began a series of protests by abortion-rights supporters. A filibuster and protest killed the bill on the last day of the first special session.
Gov. Rick Perry called lawmakers back to impose limits on when, where and how women may obtain an abortion in Texas. Opponents say it will shut down most abortion clinics in the state.
