Against Toll Roads From out of State

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 5, 2005

Dear Editor:
   I live in Las Vegas and have been contemplating a move to Austin. Southern California has been taking over this area and I was looking for a place where the politicians were not always looking for more ways to spend, and levy more taxes and fees. Now I see they are in Austin, too. Not only do you get to pay for the roads in your land taxes and gas taxes, but now I see they want you to pay again to drive on your best roads. Just remember that one toll road becomes two and then four and more. A small toll grows and grows forever. I wish you luck in your fight to keep Austin and the rest of Texas as free from as much spending and taxing as possible.
