This is sooo funny! Sen. Carona, long the champion of the transportation lobby, actually killed his own legislation, the TxDOT Sunset bill, because it didn't contain his SB 855 language authorizing County Commissioners to vote to increase taxes locally. As Sen. Carona is on the record saying, "There are many Legislators (likely himself included!) who don't like the prospect of returning to their Districts saying they raised taxes." So in other words, Sen. Carona was in favor of killing the bill because it didn't allow him to "punt" to local officials!!

Way to go, John!! I'll bet Cintra just LOVES you right about now.
