2009 Legislative Special Session

Texans Take a Giant Step Forward

2 July 2009 at 7:16:59 PM

Special Legislative Session Ends --- Well done, citizens of Texas
Lawmakers are leaving the Austin Capitol, going home to their families after Governor Rick "Dirt bag" Perry failed to get his special interest pro-toll bill approved by the Legislature.  Many individuals and anti-toll groups got involved getting their family, friends and neighbors to telephone and email lawmakers endlessly to create the pressure needed to ensure the demise of HB 3 and pro-toll agendas.
Meanwhile, our irresponsible governor provided a press relief intended to make himself and the legislature look good while saving some face.  After all, he wanted the pro-toll bill while the majority of lawmakers and the Texas community did NOT want it.
Governor's Press Release:
"I am pleased that lawmakers passed legislation to continue the Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Department of Insurance and three other state agencies, and authorized the issuance of $2 billion in transportation bonds that were approved by Texas voters in 2007.

With more than 1,000 people moving to Texas each day and a growing economy, improving transportation in our state continues to be a top priority of mine. I had hoped to reduce uncertainty regarding several major transportation projects across the state by extending the comprehensive development agreement authority for local and state transportation agencies. Although the CDA bill did not pass, we will continue to work with legislators and local officials to find transportation solutions for our state.”
However, Texans and their families are NOT safe from such a reckless governor who has a history of catering to his wealthy special interest campaign contributors and who diverts resolving the decade-long urgent issues that continue to hurt hardworking and hardly working Texans.
In November 2010 Texas voters have an early opportunity to vote in the GOP Primary for Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, thereby eliminating fellow Republican incumbent Rick Perry before the regular election.  At last there is a tangible out from Perry's oppressive rule even for Republican voters.
As for Democrats, the way it looks now former Travis County DA Ronnie Earle is the most viable candidate.
Either way, it is time to eliminate Gov. Perry from the office he does not deserve.
Today, the Texas community took a giant step forward in this effort.

Readers should know that many thanks go to Rep. David Leibowitz who led the charge against the toll road agenda with a bill that thwarted pro-toll effort and stood up for the Texas community.

Say thanks at:

This thing about allowing pipelines to be laid on public road right-of-ways is just another scheme to make public roads private (like toll roads).  It's a scheme to give our public roads over to corporate interest for their use and profit!
