Repeating what Pstern Said Yesterday-Our FREE Interstate HIGHWAYS to be Converted into TOLL ROADS

Everyone in the state of Texas ought to be outraged and immediately reaching for their notepads (to write letters), their emails (to type in responses to NOT just Texas legislators and TxDOT but to our US congressional reps and senators) and the telephone.

The Texas Department of Transportation is pushing Congress to pass a federal law allowing the state to "buy back" parts of existing interstate highways and turn them into toll roads.

And, they have money to be lobbying Congress while they're poormouthing how we can't have freeways paid already with our taxes? How is that LEGAL? WHO GAVE TXDOT THIS KIND OF POWER AND WILL THEY (WE) PLEASE TAKE IT AWAY! I don't want one red cent of my tax money going to lobby Congress to tell them to convert interstates into toll roads.

The agency's attempt to influence Congress comes on the heels of its multimillion-dollar advertising campaign touting the lightning-rod Trans-Texas Corridor plan and other toll roads.

P.S. You think, if you're reading this and you're not from Texas, this won't be next for you? Guess what, USDOT under Mary Peters is pushing this type of swill in every state and one of the first steps to making people pay to ride on roads is giving MORE power to the State DOT. Pffftt! Better tell them all off NOW.
