Gov. Perry Contributers use CDAs to syphon tax $'s

Halliburton joins the corporate welfare
feast at the public trough!


Gov. Perry's CDAs are are NO BID, Secret,
Corporate Welfare contracts.


Comprehensive Development Agreements (CDAs) are road and land development contracts that hand over our tax dollars, our public highways, our right of way, and our private property to private corporations for profit. The same corporations that fund the special interest campaigns of Perry and Rep. Krusee.

CDAs are the Perry/Krusee tool created to hold back public disclosure, public debate, legislative oversight, open and transparent government and local control. The short history of the CDAs have already proven to be rife with secrecy.

1) Attorney General opinion states Cintra must release
Perry/Cintra CDA to Houston Chronicle:

2) Cintra sues Attorney General to keep CDA a secret: http://corridornews.blogspot.com/2006/03/txdot-cintra-zachry-sue-attorney.html

3) San Antonio Lightning acquires CDA and Cintra threatens a lawsuit: http://www.sanantoniolightning.com/snitchzach.html
“CDA’s will reduce the cost that you all - will have to bear”.
– A statement by Phillip Russell, Director of TxDOT's
Turnpike divisions he addressed the Jan 17th
audience full of private corporations.


I received a request from TxDOT today, for the sign-in sheets of the Jan 17th TxDOT Industry Workshop for Comprehensive Development Agreement projects.

I went to the event and signed in myself. Interestingly, the sign-in sheets show a host of corporate wolves seeking to feast on sweet deals at our expense. The sign in list includes Halliburton (KBR), Zachry, former Hays County commissioner Bill Burnett for Dannenbaum (BIG contributor to Perry) and the City of Weatherford (Ric Williamson's home town!) who came to feed at the corporate welfare trough.

$100,000+
to Gov. Perry campaign from Zachry.
$200,000+ to Gov. Perry campaign from Dannenbaum.
and more are listed in this AP article from 2002!

Those robber barons that want more importing than what the people of that land could export would supply all of your state taxes by collecting all the money for themselves. Isn't that a nice deal?
