Group seeks a court ruling that legislators cannot serve on such planning boards.
An anti-toll road group has filed a lawsuit against state and local leaders in Austin and San Antonio over plans to use a network of toll roads in the future.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday in district court in Travis County by People for Efficient Transportation, claims toll planning groups in Austin and San Antonio were improperly created under state law and seeks a court ruling that legislators cannot serve on such planning boards.
The lawsuit also claims the planning boards are not allowed to dispense federal transportation funds.
Named as defendants in the case are Gov. Rick Perry, the Texas Department of Transportation and the planning boards in Austin and San Antonio.
