AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Senate has approved a call for a "convention of states" that would amend the U.S. Constitution and impose things like a federal balanced budget requirement.

Also, a Senate committee began hearing a bill that would limit most health insurance plans purchased under former President Barack Obama's health care law from covering the cost of abortion. 

And, the Texas House is expected to approve its first bills of the session on Wednesday.
