FORT WORTH (AP) - With legislative adjournment looming on Monday, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said he wants Gov. Rick Perry to call a special session to seek passage of failed legislation insisted upon by conservative Republicans.

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Republican Dewhurst said he wants to revive legislation that would require drug tests for welfare recipients, allow students with concealed-handgun licenses to carry guns into campus buildings and further restrict the availability of abortions.

He also wants a do-over on political redistricting, school vouchers, a tighter constitutional cap on state spending and a soft end to the state windstorm insurance program.

He also said in the interview that he will formally announce plans to seek re-election shortly after the regular session of the Legislature adjourns.
