AUSTIN, Texas-- Some very damaging footage of TxDOT's top brass under oath will be presented to the Sunset Advisory Commission at its hearing on the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) on Tuesday.

As part of TURF's lawsuit against TxDOT to stop its illegal lobbying and its ad campaign to promote toll roads and the Trans Texas Corridor in violation of Texas Government Code Chapter 556, several top officials of TxDOT were deposed under oath where they perjured themselves.

TURF will demonstrate to the Sunset Advisory Commission that TxDOT has made an unprecedented push to win public approval for its controversial toll road and Trans Texas Corridor project, using public money, which is not only illegal, it stacks the deck against citizens.

TURF will also address the reforms of citizens demand in order to restore trust in the agency.
