Speaker: Terri Hall
Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF)
- Can you afford to pay 50 cents a mile to use our public highways?
- How are property rights being threatened by the proposed high speed rail plan?
Come get answers!
The main reason Texans are stuck in traffic is a massive failure in public road policy. Between inefficiencies at TxDOT, the failure to end the practice of diverting road funds to other purposes, and overall lack of prioritizing roads in the state budget, lawmakers have relied on tolling — even imposing tolls on existing or paid-for roads — to pay for road expansion. It’ll cost Texans dearly — the equivalent of adding $17 to every gallon of gas you buy. Come find out how this policy will affect you and what you can do about it.
TURF’s mission is to educate people on government encroachment of our freedoms relating to property rights and freedom to travel. texasturf.org
