Gunning for TXDOT

Ben Wear has the run down on some proposals regarding TXDOT and it's governing body, the appointed members of the Texas Transportation Commission. They range from horrible (eliminating the five members of the TTC and replacing with one appointed Commissioner) to pretty good, electing one statewide Commissioner to what, in my opinion, is the best... an body made up of 14 elected regional commissioners and one elected statewide.

If go with the last option, Lege, can we please eliminate the MPO/RMA boards and just let the elected official make decisions?

I'm currently giving 3:1 that nothing will get done. Any takers?

I won't take that bet. If elected the single commissioner would be a good idea. If it's a single commissioner still appointed by the Gov it's pointless.
