Third Strike and Texas Road Funding is Out?

Liang Shi, KUT News

The third attempt to pass funding for road infrastructure failed reported KUT News.  The proposed bill would have redirected oil and gas revenues from the Rainy Day Fund to the state highway fund.  It fell 16 votes shy.  The reason?  Legislators wanted a minimum amount of money to be in the fund before any dollars were removed.

Governor Perry has promised to bring legislators back for another special session if the measure failed.
