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

This depends. Is the rain a result of poor inter-city commerce? Then YES!!!!! Spend it!!!!! Problem with Texas, and its individualistic political culture, is simply, " where will the money be replenished from??? Raising taxes?" HAHA. 5 years ago from a Republican in Briggs, TX

Texas should once again devote the gas tax to the maintenance of the Texas road system instead of placing those funds in the state general fund. Build more roads. Public transportation is not what moves people from place to place. It is a lot of money... 5 years ago from a Republican in Copperas Cove, TX
I think the funds should be split equally between education and public transportation. Or the government should look at the needs of each and decide which is priority and try to create a balance. 5 years ago from a Republican in Dallas, 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
