"Tired of the endless wrangling and no resolution on toll road/TTC issues? Tell your legislators that you expect them to get it done THIS SESSION!"

Join us for a Lobby Day in Austin March 3!

Having been in Austin many times since the session started, it's clear the Legislature is waffling on being tough on TxDOT and bringing much needed resolution on toll road policies and the Trans Texas Corridor.

From wanting to raid public employee retirement funds to finance risky toll projects, and to hand over our highway system to foreign toll operators, to allowing the conversion of existing freeways into tollways and looking the other way when our reckless highway department engages in lobbying with taxpayer money, TEXANS must STAND-UP and demand that these irresponsible practices come to an END!

We'll have t-shirts for folks to wear (suggested donation $10) so we can communicate our message around the Capitol.

Lobby Day to Stop Toll Roads & the TTC

Tuesday, March 3
Meet at the South Capitol entrance at 9 AM

We plan to have our group introduced from the House floor sometime between 10 & 10:30 AM, then you can spend time with your legislators to voice your concerns, do lunch at the Capitol Grill, and hear from some of our "Good Guy" legislators between 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM before heading home.

If you or your group are interested in carpooling, please let us know meeting times and locations so we can publicize it!
