Rick Perry vetoed 23 bills Friday, inducting legislation that would have outlawed sending or reading text messages wnile driving. Lawmakers approved the texting ban last month, but Perry called it an "overreach" _ and "govern- Perry ment effort to micromanage the behavior of adults." Perry also struck a handful of spending lines in the state budget. He signed several bills, including much of the next two-year state budget. That budget spent $50.4 billion in state money, but lawmakers are still wrestling with education spending in a special session. Former House Speaker Tom Craddick had pushed the texting while driving ban, touting it as a public-safety measure. But the bill triggered more than a half-hour of debate on the House floor with opponents arguing the bill would amount to criminalizing drivers simply for receiving a text message while driving. San Antonio and El Plaso have laws forbidding texting while driving, and at least 30 other states have enacted similar statewide bans. State Rep. Doug Miller said he believes a bill he introduced has a good chance of being passed by Gov. Rick Perry's inactivity. Miller, R-New Braunfels, said HB 2120 would open a second seat on the Teacher Retirement System board to a retired teacher. He said there is only one spot available now for retired teachers. Miller said Friday that he has heard nothing to lead him to believe the bill will not pass. "I'm expecting the governor is either going to sign it or just let it pass without a signature."
