SH 130 Special Edition

State Highway 130 is billed as the most expensive highway project in Texas history. It's also the first time a private consortium designs, builds, operates and maintains a Texas tollway for the next half century.

"This stretch of road holds a very special place in our history. This is the first road built via a public-private partnership."

Corporations stand to profit as lobbyists and lawmakers pave the way for private foreign interests.

"Texas roads belong to Texans."

The SH 130 edition chronicles the dramatic events that emerge during public meetings, press conferences and a State Legislative session plagued by comprehensive development agreements, non-compete clauses and bankruptcy.

"Truth Be Tolled is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how big money interests and government bureaucrats are hell bent on tolling Texas highways in spite of an overwhelming taxpayer opposition."

281 Special Edition

281 Special Edition chronicles the dramatic events that emerge during public meetings, environmental lawsuits, press conferences and exposes the controversial truth behind the plan to toll US Highway 281.

Regional mobility authorities along with special interests have figured a way to make money on public infrastructure. The current plan is to use public funds to convert existing highways, already paid and funded by taxpayers, into tollways without a public vote.

Citizens are crying highway robbery.

Terri Hall, a home-schooling mother turned citizen activist, fights among grassroots in an effort to halt the proliferation of toll roads.

“This is not just one toll road, this is going to be an entire new policy, every new lane, every new road in the State of Texas is slated to become a toll road, if they can make it toll viable.”

TURF Special Edition

TURF Special Edition chronicles the events and shocking developments leading to a landmark lawsuit and exposes the truth behind the Keep Texas Moving advertising campaign.

“The Keep Texas Moving campaign is a one-sided attempt to advocate one political point of view on a highly controversial matter,” argues Terri Hall, anti-toll activist and founder of Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom. “It’s clear they’ve not only crossed the line into illegal lobbying, but they leaped over it.”

In a David and Goliath battle, Terri and her attorney, fight against all odds to halt the Texas Department of Transportation from spending taxpayer funds to promote the TTC and toll roads.

The plan is not only to convert existing Texas roadways into toll ways without a public vote, but to seize over half a million acres of Texas soil and replace it with a 4,000 mile road, rail and utility network.

TTC Special Edition

First Texas, then the nation.

Government has found a new way to make money on public infrastructure.

The plan is not only to convert existing roadways into toll ways without a public vote, but to seize over half a million acres of Texas soil and replace it with a 4,000 mile road, rail and utility network.

The political establishment is not listening to the people—but their voices will be heard.

Grassroots organizers to working-class Texans, all unite to state their loud opposition. The strongest voices rise from small rural communities whose farms, homes, schools, businesses and churches face the largest forcible eminent domain acquisition in U.S. history.

The Trans-Texas Corridor, the first leg of the proposed NAFTA superhighway, will not only rip the heart out of Texas, it will kill a way of life that has been in the Lone Star State forever.
