Texas farmers are stepping up their opposition to the Trans-Texas Corridor, a massive highway project that ultimately could take about half a million acres of the state out of agricultural production – and according to opponents possibly hasten the advent of a North American Union.
“Our members are overwhelmingly opposed to the Trans-Texas Corridor,” said Farm Bureau President Kenneth Dierschke, a grain and cotton farmer from San Angelo. “There’s never been any doubt that the impact on agriculture would be negative, but now we see a growing number of people who believe the TTC would be bad for all of Texas.”
The organization has called the proposal a “disaster” for farm and ranch businesses that lie in its path, whose owners also are discovering that they have allies in their battle.
