The Morning Texan: Heat, special session and more


According to the National Weather Service, Thursday's high could approach 101 degrees. The day will start with a few clouds in the sky, but it is expected to clear up quickly.

It has been an intense news week. On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States announced several landmark cases, including the long awaited Fisher v. Texas case. On Tuesday, the abortion filibuster lasted all day and legislation in the Senate was killed in the late hours of Tuesday evening. It also broke on Tuesday that the Texas Legislature would be investigating UT System Regent Wallace Hall for possible impeachment. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court released two decisions on the same-sex marriage cases, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced a second special session.
