These are the House Members who refused to accept a butchered moratorium bill. Without Amendment 13 guaranteeing that the TTC stayed in the moratorium, there was no point in passing the bill. With Perry's demands that MARKET VALUATION be applied to Texas Transportation projects, SB 792 had more disadvantages to the public than advantages. These Representatives stood firm against Perry and refused to vote to pass SB 792.
14 Democrats and 5 Republicans held the line.
