Join us for a Grassroots Tax Revolt on Lobby Day March 3!

Tell your lawmakers face to face that we want our freeways fixed and to keep them FREE of additional toll taxes!
Lobby Day to Stop Toll Roads & the TTC
Tuesday, March 3
Meet at the South Capitol entrance at 9 AM

DFW carpool location announced!

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!
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, leveraged 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 wreckless 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.

Carpool info
DFW carpool location - David Smith, Coordinator - If you would like to carpool or are in need of a ride, call or email me ASAP as I will either be leaving Monday evening or Tuesday morning early, depending on those coming with me. Plan on meeting at the Corner Market at Lover's Lane and Greenville Avenue where you can leave your cars. Park at your own risk, but it is a well-traveled intersection and a nice area.
