There can be no doubt about the intentions of our corrupt UN-elected transportation officials. They will lie, cheat, and steal to convert our freeways into tollways, even when they’re paid for. Chair of the tolling authority, the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (ARMA), Bill Thornton promised motorists if it got stimulus funds for 281, it WOULD NOT BE TOLLED. Then, when you look at the project list submitted to TxDOT, it clearly lists 281 as a toll project, in spite of stimulus funding. The deception and lies are breathtaking!

Bill Thornton states: “If the project is paid for through federal funds, you don’t need that option of tolling.”

Project list submitted to House Select Committee on Federal Economic Stabilization Funding: “281 north of Loop 1604 – Construct new toll road” (which is in itself misleading since it’s NOT new, they’ll convert every lane we drive on today to a toll lane and the NEW lanes they build will be the frontage roads to the outside)
