Trans Texas Corridor Is Not Dead

I received this update early this morning from Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF):

No laws have been changed, no Minute Orders rescinded, contracts revoked, nor environmental documents re-done to actually KILL the TTC once and for all. What we got instead was effectively a hail Mary pass from a TxDOT Executive Director, Amadeo Saenz, whose job is about to get axed if the Sunset Commission's recommendations to cut his position are adopted. Too little, too late, Mr. Saenz. The people of Texas want to clean house and start over with new leadership the public can trust, not more of the same corrupt and illegal dealings from a belligerent and unresponsive state agency about to tax its citizens off their own public roadways!

Saenz even stated in his speech that they're simply renaming the TTC and chopping it up into smaller projects under different names. This famous bait and switch act by government gone awry amounts to a sneaky attempt at duping concerned citizens into thinking the battle is won only to rear its ugly head later. They're putting lipstick on their pig, but it's still a pig!
