Texas legislators propose transportation funding option for North Texas

The Austin Business Journal notes that State Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas, and State Rep. Vicki Truitt, R-Southlake, are co-sponsors of legislation that would allow local communities to raise taxes or fees to support urban and suburban commuter rail lines and highways. The bill they filed allows for North Texas to take greater control over its infrastructure and to further develop “complete streets” programs, that would allow for better bicycle and ped facilities on existing roadways. This is very promising news for our community. Stay tuned for more details!
