FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Storm Pictures LLC has just completed an entirely new special edition of William H. Molina’s award-winning feature documentary, 'Truth Be Tolled: 281 Special Edition,' which documents and exposes the controversial truth behind the tolling of US Highway 281 and the Trans-Texas Corridor.
The 281 Special Edition chronicles the dramatic events that emerge during public meetings, environmental lawsuits, press conferences and a State Legislative session plagued by back room deals, secret contracts, and corrupt leadership. The documentary also exposes the truth about the Trans-Texas Corridor, a threat still alive for many ranchers, farmers and residents that sit in its path (only one-quarter of the corridor is truly "dead").
“This is not just one toll road, it's a sweeping new policy -- every new lane, every new road in the State of Texas, with few exceptions, is slated to become a toll road. There are 57 toll projects on the books for Bexar County alone,” reveals Terri Hall, a home-schooling mother turned anti-toll activist who has led the grassroots effort to halt the proliferation of toll roads and the Trans-Texas Corridor.
The Texas Department of Transportation is so entangled in its own shortcomings that the Sunset Commission declares, “Until trust is restored at TxDOT, the state can not effectively meet its transportation needs.”
Government and unelected bureaucracies have figured a way to make money on public infrastructure. The current plan is to convert existing right of ways, already paid and funded by taxpayers, into tollways and hand them over to foreign and private interests without so much as a public vote. Citizens are crying "highway robbery."
The political establishment is not listening to the people, but their voices will be heard.
