Following a 12:01 meeting Thursday morning, the Sunset Bills were passed out of the Senate releasing the other 19 items on Governor Greg Abbott's agenda.

"No surprises there except for on one of the education items he expanded the focus to also include teacher retirement and school finance. Previously we had just seen teacher pay and the establishment of a commission to study school finance," Reporter for The Texas Tribune said.

The Senate jumped on the list throwing 29 bills into committee meetings set to begin at 8 o'clock Friday morning.

Both the Senate and the House have adjourned until Monday morning.
