Feb. 11--Declaring that Attorney General Greg Abbott "continues to defend the indefensible," state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, on Monday called on Abbott to settle the school finance lawsuit before state District Judge John Dietz, and seek a special session of the Legislature to design a new school funding formula that would pass constitutional muster.
"I call on him today to settle this case," the Democratic gubernatorial candidate said Monday in Austin. "Now is the time to end this mess. It's time to move forward."
