Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wants lawmakers to tackle additional items on the agenda -- and right at the top is redistricting.
Abbott is calling lawmakers back to Austin Monday for a third special session.
There will be other items listed for consideration, including COVID-19 vaccine mandates and transgender sports.
And once a decade, the legislature redraws political boundaries. Republicans have an 83 to 67 edge in the house and an 18 to 13 majority in the Senate.
Democrats are hopeful Republicans will set a tone of bipartisanship when the lines are redrawn.
Also on the agenda -- Abbott is asking lawmakers to try again to pass a transgender sports bill and divvy up the nearly $16 billion that president Joe Biden's COVID-relief package sent to Texas.
The governor is also asking lawmakers to revisit a bill that would protect dogs from dangerous restraints. He faced criticism for vetoing a bill over concerns it would micromanage dog owners.
