Rosebud-Lott ISD Superintendent Donald Schmidt introduced a resolution opposing the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC).

Schmidt stated that he was against the TTC for school-related and personal reasons.

Three reasons were cited: 1) it takes away from the school tax base, 2) school bus routes will be adversely impacted, and 3) it is a major safety hazard when considering how emergency vehicles will cross the TTC.

Schmidt said that he "would like to let them know that as a school district, we are opposed to the TTC."

Trustee Larry Luedke moved that the 'Resolution Opposing the Trans-Texas Corridor" be approved. The motion was approved unanimously.

According to David Stall of, Rosebud-Lott ISD is the first school board to pass a resolution against the TTC.

Stall said that the County Commissioners Courts of 29 counties including Falls and Milam Counties have passed resolutions opposing the construction of the TTC.
