Message

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing as a taxpayer and constituent to urge you to continue to prioritize transportation infrastructure by allowing regions and communities to use all the tools at their disposal to address congestion. This includes allowing toll and managed lanes to be constructed where it makes sense.



This is a free market, small government solution and I urge you to approve the use of toll lanes to include I-35 in the Austin region, MoPac South, the Y in Oak Hill, US 183 North and other highways where it is deemed to have a positive impact on congestion relief in Central Texas and across the state.

Thank you for your leadership, and your action on this important issue.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
