The County is spending your local road funds to build the streetcar!
    • TOOK $92 million in road funds that voters in 2004 were promised would only be used to leverage state funds for road construction.
    • SWAPPED them with TxDot for $92 million that can be used for the downtown streetcar line that will only benefits developers and politicians.
    • GAVE UP $300 million in state funds that would have built roads that would have actually reduced congestion! 
JOIN THE FIGHT TO
STOP THE SWAP 
CALL:
GOVERNOR PERRY At   [masked]
SPEAKER STRAUSS At   [masked] 

DEMAND THEY STOP THE SWAP!
