Those Sneaky Sneaky Texas Toll Roads- Blacklands Corridor-2014

Toll Roads are Zombies. Just when you think you have struck them dead, they pop up from behind a tree and Walk Again. People have noticed that an important planning document released by the Texas Department of Transportation, called the 2015 Unified Transportation Program, still lists the toll road. "NEW LOCATION TOLL ROAD-BLACKLANDS CORRIDOR," TxDOT's UTP says. We thoug......

WaPost -- Gov. Rick Perry's (R) out-of-state travel has cost Texas taxpayers $3.3 million in security bills since he won re-election in 2010. Most of that, $1.8 million, came between August 2011 and January 2012, when Perry was running for president.

Open Records Complaint to Texas AG-10/28/2014

Readers may remember that some years back, I requested salary information from various government entities.
