To the Honorable Speaker Joe Straus:
Several years ago the Texas Legislature approved a bill to permit Texas Disabled Veterans to drive toll roads for free,
HOWEVER, they did not provide money from the General Fund to do so.
Therefore, the CTRMA as per the General Meeting of the Board of Directors, crafted Resolution NO. 10-106 and have tossed the bill back to the Legislature for funding to cover Disabled Veterans driving free on Texas toll roads.
I am asking that you consider presenting a bill before the House to fund the previous bill approved by the Legislature and now finance the bill from the General Fund so that Disabled Veterans may indeed drive tolls roads in Texas for free.
It is one thing to provide Disabled Veterans with the “lip service” of a free ride and quite another to actually fund the bill so it is a reality.
Thank you for your prompt attention to my request on behalf of all Disabled Veterans in the State of Texas.
