Some Form Of Toll Compromise Has Been Reached

That’s what AAS reporter Ben Wear is telling us, Toll road compromise reached. The question is who has reached an agreement?

Lawmakers, representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation and others have reached agreement on major toll road legislation that will be laid out this morning in a meeting of the Senate Transportation and Homeland Security Committee

But there could be a backlash. Many legislators had said this session that what they didn’t want was to be presented with a large “agreed-upon” transportation bill late in the session with little or no time to absorb it.

That’s exactly what they’re getting, however.

Obviously the lawmakers involved in this deal are Gov. Perry, Sen. Carona and Rep. Krusee. As for who the “others” are, just use your imagination. Could be a backlash? No, probably will be a backlash. More on tolls and moratoriums to come.
