House Bill 2675 Toll Agenda Sneaks Back Into Legislative Session

Peter Stern – We were told the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) plan (the “wet dream” of Gov. Rick Perry and his predecessor George W. Bush) went the way of the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Wooly Mammoth. However, here we go again and legislators are looking not only at the TTC again, but also are proposing significant toll roads throughout Texas.

So, fellow Texans, send your legislators the following message via these 2 links:
 
Senators at http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/senate/Members.htm
 
House Reps at http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/
 
 
Dear Texas Senators and House Representatives:
 
As your supporters and constituents, we are asking that you vote-down HB 2675.   For the past decade, the majority of Texans have made it clear that they do NOT want further toll roads throughout Texas, in particular the now infamous Perry-induced Trans-Texas Corridor.
 
Texans would rather find alternative methods of financing the building and maintenance of their roadways.
 
Thank you for your support and consideration of this request. Vote NO on HB 2675!
