Texas Lege *Refines* Toll Plans- NO! Difference Between *Moratorium* and *Two-Year Delay*

21 May 2007 at 9:47:41 AM

VOTE THESE PEOPLE OUT in the next election. FIND someone to run against them now that is for Texans and let's get RID of anyone who thinks that taking people's land for TOLL ROADS is a good thing.

I haven't written much in the last week or so about the toll road bill, because I was waiting to see how and where the Texas legislators were going to cave. This Midland news article tells me what I want to know.

With smooth progress, construction could start in two or three years on the 4,000 mile network from Gainesville near I-35 past Laredo, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth. ..

Entering the final week of their legislative session, state lawmakers have been knotted in the conundrum, passing but then diluting a two-year moratorium on the toll roads it envisions.

"I'm pleased that members of the Legislature, the governor's office, Harris County officials and officials of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex have reached an agreement to move forward with transportation policy," Speaker of the House Tom Craddick of Midland said Friday.

"I know Representatives Wayne Smith of Baytown and Lois Kolkhorst of Brenham, as well as other members, have worked hard on this compromise."

Sid Miller, are you listening?
