Congestion is not only harmful to our environment, it robs people and enterprises of valuable time that could be spent with family, friends and customers. The planning, funding and construction process for roadways cannot happen overnight, which is why we must address our structural shortfall of transportation funding before it reaches crisis proportions.
Dan’s efforts to address our state’s mobility challenges include:
Additional Highway funding: Dan voted for the successful constitutional amendment to support funding for Texas transportation projects.
TxDoT Oversight: Dan has consistently supported legislation to strengthen oversight of the Texas Department of Transportation and limit diversions from transportation funding.
Towing Industry Reform: Dan authored a new law to reform unfair towing practices in Texas and make it easier for owners to reclaim their vehicles from tow yards.
Local Control: Dan fought to ensure local tolls are invested in local projects and public transit authorities get first option to build local projects in their area.
With the population in North Texas expected to reach 10 million by 2025, it’s going to take a full range of options in the transportation “toolbox” to build and maintain the capacity we’ll need to keep Texas moving.
