Care about Toll Roads in Texas? Go to the Texas Senate Hearing on March 1

16 February 2007 at 2:19:06 PM

From CorridorWatch


Senator John Carona, Chairman

THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2007 @ 8:30 a.m.
Capitol Extension Auditorium, Room E1.004
Texas State Capitol Building, Austin, Texas
Public Policy
Toll Roads
Public Private Partnerships
Trans Texas Corridor

The Citizens of Texas are presented with an unique opportunity to challenge the wisdom of the Trans Texas Corridor and express their concern about the growing obsession with toll roads and public private partnerships. 
The subject of this hearing is not limited to TTC-35, TTC-69, or proposed TTC corridor routes or specific toll roads.
Come hear TxDOT defend their policies to our elected officials. And, hear others who seriously question those policies. Add your presence and your voice to the debate.
Come fill the auditorium. All eyes at the Capitol will be focused on this hearing as an indication of public acceptance or opposition. This Senate Committee can have a real impact on the flawed public policy surrounding these projects.
The hearing will also be broadcast live via the Internet [site]
The Capitol Extension Auditorium can be reached from the Capitol north wing elevators, on Level E1 (across from the Cafeteria) [map]

Help Us Share This Notice
Everyone concerned about the Trans Texas Corridor needs to be notified so they don't miss the opportunity to appear and participate.
Help us get this notice to those who are concerned about private property rights; the use of public infrastructure to generate private profits; the uncontrolled expansion of toll roads; the diversion of economic benefits away from urban centers and rural communities; public safety and homeland security; and especially, the process that has been used to exclude public participation from decision making.
