Citizens Being Denied Information On TTC

We are always being told by so many of our elected representatives in this state what a great thing the TTC is going to be. When you see articles like this, Some Trans Texas Corridor details are being kept very quiet, it gets the "boondoggleometer" spinning. It tells a story of citizens of this state, Coupland to be exact, trying to find out more about what will happen to the property the property that's been in their "family for generations" if the TTC comes:
And even though decisions are being made and deals are being cut, many important details about the project are very hard to get.

"The corridor's Draft Environmental Impact Statement was due in December and it's not out," (Susan Ridgeway Garry of Coupland) said, explaining that it will more precisely plot the final route of the corridor. "My husband and I filed an open records request to see it," she says, "and TxDOT sent a letter saying they referred our request to the attorney general for an opinion on whether they must let us see it."

I know how frustrating that can be. And I hope the Garrys aren't too surprised if they don't see it until after the November election.
And Republicans say they're for open government?
