The Quorum Report and the Austin American Statesman are reporting a deal is being brokered between Transportation Committee Chairman John Carona and the Governor over the private toll moratorium/county powers bill HB 1892. However, what we are hearing from insiders is that the provisions being negotiated DON’T TOUCH the moratorium or the Carona provisions deemed “killer” by the pro-tollers. Overall, there are clearly the votes to override, the Governor knows it, and our senators/reps will not accept a lesser bill, only HB 1892 or better.
Keep the pressure on…who knows what threats from this Governor are still to come.
