Texas' special session kicks off Tuesday. Austin congressman Lloyd Doggett calls it a session of hate, since the state's controversial  bathroom bill and others have made it on the list of items. Doggett said schools around Texas face great problems because the legislature failed to deal with school finance. The other issues, he continued, will only bring negative affects to the state economy.
