Councilman: "It's a taxation plan, not a congestion plan"

See Councilman Jeff Mills of Sunset Valley on YouTube here telling the Board these toll roads are about raising revenue, not solving congestion.

Last night in Austin, the Capitol Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) Board voted to convert 4 more FREEways into tollways (and build one new toll road) using $910 million in YOUR gas taxes. The public was against it 4 to 1! We no longer have representative government and Councilman Mills’ speech on this above YouTube link proves this is about taxation, not congestion relief.
