What Does The Chairman Of The House Transportation Committee Have To Say About This?

Last month I posted about Cintra-Zachry, Why Does Every New Road Have To Be A Toll Road. Now that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has been ordered by the Texas Attorney General to turn over secret provisions of their contract with Cintra-Zachry they still don't want to turn over the information. It always makes me wonder when those involved in a billion dollar public project are unwilling to let the PEOPLE see what was done in their name. Now I'm sure there are people who think that this is just too technical or confusing for the average citizen to understand and it's better left to our elected, or in the case of TxDOT appointed, officials and we should just trust them. To that I have to say, "Uh...No!" It think the best person to ask about this is the chairman of the House Transportation Committee, Mike Krusee. Now we know Mr. Krusee was instrumental in getting the original bill, HB 3588, authorizing the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) through the 78th legislature. He's also responsible for getting the "clean-up" bill, HB 2702, through the 79th legislature. We also know that the more the people of Texas learn about the TTC the less they like it. Therefore does anyone know where Mike Krusee stands on the release of the secret provisions information about the contract between TxDOT and Cintra-Zachry? I think we should ask him.
