There are still five days (as of May 26th) left in the 87th Texas Legislative Session, and one top lawmaker is already calling for a special session to begin in June.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has called on Governor Greg Abbott to call a special session to address three pieces of legislation that were killed off by a midnight deadline Tuesday in the Texas House.

Patrick wants to see a special session to address SB29, which would make student athletes participate on boys teams if they were born boys and girls teams if they were born girls. Patrick also wants to see SB10 addressed, which would put a ban on taxpayer-funded lobbying. Finally, he wants a special session to address SB12, which addresses social media censorship. A ban on social media censorship was a priority of both the lieutenant governor and Governor Abbott.

Shortly after Patrick called for the governor to order a special session, Governor Abbott responded with a little cold water for now. According to the Texas Tribune, Abbott wants both the House and Senate to continue working:

We know that there will be at least one special session this fall dealing with redistricting and COVID-19 funds. Will there be another? We may know in about five days.
