Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, has filed a bill allowing Texas state colleges and universities to issue a total of $100 million of tuition revenue bonds. She said she wants to be ready to move if Gov. Rick Perry expands the bills that could be considered in the current special legislative session.

Zaffirini’s proposal to authorize up to $3.2 billion of revenue bonds to finance 74 projects across the state failed to pass during the regular session.
