The governor of Texas wants state pension funds to divest from companies doing business in Iran, a move advocated by Israeli officials he met with last month. Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, said Wednesday he was trying to determine whether he could begin the divestment process without legislation. If he cannot, he said, he might call a special legislative session.
