Toll Payer Protection Act Filed (HB1951) by Member of Texas House Transportation Committee

Today, State Representative and House Transportation Committee member Matt Krause (R-Fort Worth) filed HB 1951, the Toll Payer Protection Act (TPPA).

Texans for Traffic Relief (TTR) spent the last eighteen months talking with people across the state who both support and oppose toll roads. Regardless of where these Texans were on toll roads, there were a number of issues that we continually encountered: desire for local participation, resistance to raising taxes to fund new roads, toll billing reform, and an end to perpetual tolling. TTR listened, and the feedback and ideas from those conversations formed the basis of the Toll Payer Protection Act.
