LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Lubbock's Planned Parenthood Women's Health Center can resume taking appointments.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst is demanding federal reimbursement to county jails for inmates who are in the United States illegally. Dewhurst says "it's outrageous that county jails pay for housing more than 130,000 people that illegally enter our state." He added that "the immigration conversation begins and ends with strict border security as our counties can no longer fund this massive financial burden."
