The term Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) has become wildly unpopular in Texas, since it creates eminent domain abuse of hundreds of millions of acres, all for special interest profits.
Gov. Perry's TxDOT is now pushing another leg of the TTC without calling it the "TTC" according to a deposition of a top TxDOT official. Weeks ago Judge Orlinda Naranjo allowed a number of TxDOT officials to be deposed as part of the lawsuit filed by TURF.
According to a recent deposition given under oath by Amadeo Saenz, Executive Director of TxDOT, TxDOT now considers the "Ports to Plains" as part of the Trans Texas Corridor, says Terri Hall of TURF when asked yesterday.
Years ago, Ports to Plains was promised as a FREE highway relief route to I-35. Selling it off as a toll road is more profitable, which allows more back room deals and corruption. Interestingly enough, TxDOT was fighting the deposition of TxDOT chair Ric Williamson, when he died in December.
