DALLAS — Texas lawmakers are expected to complete the special legislative session’s budget work on Thursday when the House will consider school finance bills passed by the Senate late last week.

The measures are identical to compromise proposals developed by a joint House-Senate conference committee. The bills were adopted by the House during the regular session, but opposition by the minority Democrats and then a filibuster on school finances prevented the Senate from acting on them or the next two-year budget during the 140-day session.
