Learn more about Texas Transportation Funding
The 2014 Texas Transportation Funding Amendment would divert 12% of the state's oil and natural-gas tax revenue from reserve accounts into a fund that would repair roads, highways and bridges. Proponents, including the State legislature and Governor Rick Perry, argue that the state's recent addition of 5.2 million residents clogged the state's roadways. Opponents say that the funds will be diverted from a "rainy day fund" which should only be used for emergencies. See recent Texas transportation funding news

No, we are having a drought of ambition, a drought of optimism, and a drought of political values and the rainy day fund will only delay our dealing with the real problems not solving them. 5 years ago from a Republican in Universal City, TX
Absolutely not. The state needs to quit redirecting monies that come from a particular taxing authority and throwing it in the general fund. Gas tax was meant for road and road maintenance and any other use is misappropriation. 5 years ago from a Republican in San Antonio, TX
The money should be spent expanding medicaid and transportation for women seeking the services of the VERY FEW planned parenthood clinics in the State. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Killeen, TX

Why isn't this going to Schools then? How about half to to the schools and the other half be divided between works and public transportation? Everyone gets something that way...better than nothing. 5 years ago from a Green in Madisonville, TX
Put it towards education like it was originally ear marked for, then onto public transportation. 5 years ago from a Democrat in North Richland Hills, TX

A rainy day fund is just that. Don't touch it for non-emergency item. If we need it - fund it. 5 years ago from a Republican in Grand Prairie, TX
