AUSTIN (AP) - The Texas Legislature is done lawmaking with a scorecard of big-agenda victories, but it might not be big enough for Gov. Rick Perry.

The biennial 140-day session ends Monday. It may be Perry’s last depending on his political plans, but either way, all signs indicate the nation’s longest-serving governor is not through having a say on shaping Texas.

Lawmakers late Sunday sent Perry a slate of major new bills to sign. Those include an overhaul of public school testing and a state budget that restores $4 billion to classrooms.

Perry’s term ends in 2014. He hasn’t said whether he’ll run for re-election, but many lawmakers expect Perry to order a special 30-day summer session that could revive failed conservative measures surrounding abortion and gun rights.
