Texas Senate Panel Says NO to *39 Percent* and Approves 2 year Toll Road Moratorium

Now, who knows what will happen when it goes to the House, as run by Crook Craddick? But at least there are Texas Senators looking out for the people that represented them.

A key Senate panel approved a two-year freeze on state toll road contracts with private companies, a bill that Gov. Rick Perry had urged lawmakers not to act on.

Sponsored by Sen. Robert Nichols, R-Jacksonville, a former member of the Texas Transportation Commission, the bill would also require a study of the long-term effects of public-private toll road agreements.

"We don't have the luxury of time," Nichols said. "If we wait too long, these contracts will be signed and Texas will be trapped in agreements that will hold our transportation system hostage for the next half century."

The bill was approved by the Senate Transportation and Homeland Security Committee and now goes to the full Senate.
