Senate approves bill restricting abortion insurance

Texas passes tough rules on reporting abortion complications

Also Saturday, the House gave final approval to SB 6, requiring cities in counties with populations above 500,000 to get voter approval before annexing areas where more than 200 people live. Saturday could be a pivotal day for that issue, as the House is slated to take up a key property tax reform measure.

Under state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione's House Bill 13, those requirements would get more strict: Physicians would have to submit reports to the state health commission within three days that include detailed information such as the patient's year of birth, race, marital status, state and county of residence, and the date of her last menstrual cycle. Their passage drew House floor applause.

The Senate has set the rate at 4 percent and the differences will have to be worked out.

Efforts to approve a bill that would restrict bathroom access for people who are transgender have stalled in the Texas House. It's emerged as the main education-related debate of the special session, as other items under that category, such as a teacher pay raise and vouchers for special-needs students, have fallen by the wayside.

The bill returns to the Senate, which can agree to House changes or seek a conference committee to negotiate over the changes.

Texas' big cities are booming like few places in the US, and mayors say Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is doing damage by trying to rein them in.

"Senate Bill 1 does not provide relief for taxpayers". After a final vote in the Senate, it will head to the governor's desk. Both measures contain exemptions, although their details differ.

The Senate approved HB 7, relating to city tree ordinances, but not before making big changes in committee to the version that passed out of the House, including further restricting cities' abilities to prevent private landowners from cutting down trees on their property.

As they did when a similar measure passed the Senate earlier in the session, Democrats attempted to amend the bill to include exceptions for fetal abnormalities, rape and incest.

Rep. Diana Arévalo, D-San Antonio, is among the bill's opponents.

Both chambers were meeting Saturday.

Bonnen also repeatedly said that the bill would not actually lower property tax bills, but would only allow voters to block some increases.
