What prompted this action by state leaders?
Remember, we the people were the catalyst that sparked this firestorm! We worked with 67 grassroots groups across the state to compose a coalition letter sending a strong message to the Governor that we support his promise to protect Texans from new toll taxes and that his highway department had gone rogue planning to add 15 toll projects to the plan.
Ten days later, Gov. Patrick and then Gov. Abbott issued scathing statements opposing all new toll projects, forcing TxDOT to reverse course and issue its own statement that it will remove tolls from the plan just hours later.
Thank you for standing with us
We thank all of you who have stood by Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF) and Texans for Toll-free Highways for over a decade as we have fought long and hard to see this day. Finally, our state leaders are reflecting the tremendous anti-toll sentiment of Texans!
But, we still have work to do.
We must remove their ability to keep current tolls in place in perpetuity and keep extending their current toll systems so that toll roads never get paid off and tolls never come down. There's also at least three other instances where TxDOT is currently breaking the law, SB 312, and needs to be held accountable.
TxDOT and local toll authorities will hunker down until there are leaders favorable to their toll tax scheme. They'll turn to the federal government for taxpayer-backed loans (like federal TIFIA loans that were used on the bankrupt SH 130) to try and get more toll projects when they think no one is looking.
Help us continue to fight for taxpayers by making a generous donation today. We'd very much appreciate your financial support!
