Office of the Governor Rick Perry

Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Senate passage of SB 792:

Monday, May 14, 2007  •  Press Release

“I commend senators for working swiftly to address transportation concerns I share with many local leaders. This is a good compromise that allows projects important to local communities to go forward, recognizing that Texas is a fast-growing state with real congestion concerns that cannot be put on hold. With less than two weeks remaining, I believe lawmakers are capable of sending me a transportation bill that doesn’t hinder the state’s ability to build needed roads, allows Texas to continue to receive federal highway dollars and ensures that transportation decisions with a statewide impact are made at the statewide level.”
