... is congrats on taking the top honor at the WorldFest Houston Film Festival and look at what's happening in the state legislature.
Your documentary on the grassroots resistance to private investment in Texas toll roads (like the mothertrucking Trans-Texas Corridor) got the Texas lege to support a two-year moratorium on these types of public-private partnerships - well, that's what A-ganger Terri Hall of the SA Toll Party and Turf.org says.
The latest edit of the film was given to every Texas legislator this March. And then the pro toll road gargoyle who chairs the House Transportation Committee, Mike Krusee, voted along with the rest of his committee yesterday in support of a toll-road moratorium (SB 1267) - finally giving Texas its "when pigs fly" moment (and continuing the lege rebellion against Governor Perry, who's been pushing the privatization of state highways). The Senate already approved that moratorium, too.
Even if Perry vetoes SB 1267 (said to be already on his desk) the lege still has time to override him. The session ends May 28.
