Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the passing of SJR1 and SB1 by the Texas Senate:
"Continuing Texas' success long into the future requires that we take bold steps now to maintain our state's infrastructure and keep up with our growing population and the need to move more and more goods to market. I commend Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and the members of the Senate for doing their part to keep Texas moving on an upward trajectory of economic fortune. I look forward to working with members of the Texas House to ensure we address the important transportation needs of our state."
