Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Toll Roads in Texas


Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Toll Roads in Texas

24 October 2007 at 9:59:15 AM

Yes. Turf (Texans Uniting for Freedom and Reform), represented by attorney David Van Os, have filed a lawsuit in federal court to stop construction on anything you'd have to pay to drive on. Why should public highway lanes become toll lanes? 

One lawsuit against the state is already pending. On Monday afternoon, TURF attorneys filed another one with the Federal Government, hoping the courts make changes in how toll roads are decided.

They want to put the power back in the hands of the people.

"We believe that it violates the fundamental rights of citizens and voters to equal protection of the law and freedom of speech," said TURF Attorney David Van Os.

David Van Os and the Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom are outraged the group of non-elected board members for San Antonio and Bexar County are able to make million dollar transportation decisions using taxpayer money without the consent of the taxpayer.
