Governor Perry Angry Over Education Spending Measure

Texas Governor Rick Perry is calling on Congressional Democrats to take out a Texas specific provision in a financial aid package to states.

The measure requires Governor Perry to promise Texas will maintain current education spending levels through 2013.

Perry says he can't do that, citing the state constitution stops him from committing to future legislative spending.

The House is scheduled to take up the measure next week, but no changes are expected.
