Gov. Rick Perry's TxDOT has refused to properly take care of it's landscaping responsibility, as weeds grow uncontrolled beside it's highways across the state. A Dallas city council is so frustrated with the weeds that they talked about abolishing TxDOT. From NBC:
"Our freeways look absolutely terrible. You know, it's the introduction to our city for many people," said Angela Hunt, Dallas City Councilmember.and:
"On Monday the council committee considered another option, bringing into question whether or not the Texas Department of Transportation should even exist.
"If the city of Dallas isn't getting what we deserve, then yes, I think we need to look at whether we even need a Texas Department of Transportation," said Hunt"
