AUSTIN (AP) - Republican leaders in Texas are back to work at the Capitol with an agenda that includes tax relief, abortion restrictions and spending restraint.

Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday is joining Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus in laying out their plans for a new legislative session. Perry and Dewhurst are both out to reassert their political power to lawmakers and the public after failed campaigns for bigger offices.

Dewhurst has vowed to make the next 140 days among the most conservative sessions in recent history. Straus is starting his third term as speaker and has outlined an agenda that includes public schools, infrastructure and water.

Lawmakers entered the session with a bright revenue forecast that includes up to $101 billion in available spending.
