Ledge Tells Perry's TxDOT to Use Bonds for Roads - Perry Says No, We'll Just Toll Everything

From the Statesman yesterday:

"The short letter — signed by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, House Speaker Tom Craddick, Senate Finance Chairman Steve Ogden and House Appropriations Chairman Warren Chisum — recommends that TxDOT borrow another $1.5 billion against future gas tax revenue to bridge a temporary financial tight spot."
Perry rejects Dewhurst/Craddick suggestion as a 'two-year stopgap.' Read the Statesman article HERE.
