(CNN) — Texas Lt Gov. David Dewhurst declared the end of a special legislative early Wednesday, some three hours after a midnight deadline. The state Senate failed to vote on a bill that would have greatly restricted abortions in the state.
A raucous gallery drowned out the final 15 minutes of the session, preventing lawmakers from calling a vote.
