As we enter the final few weeks of the 85th Texas Legislative Session, support to #BuildThisTrain continues to grow and Bullet Train supporters are making their voices heard in Austin. At a Texas House Transportation Committee hearing last week, a group of students from Texas A&M, Blinn College, University of Houston and Texas Southern University traveled to Austin to deliver testimony in opposition to a slate of bills aimed at harming or stopping the Bullet Train project.
Thanks to your continued support, your Bullet Train is being built every day.
In addition, 12 legislators (Eric Johnson, Linda Koop, Roberto Alonzo, Rafael Anchía, Rodney Anderson, Cindy Burkett, Angie Chen Button, Morgan Meyer, Victoria Neave, Toni Rose, Ron Simmons and Jason Villalba) recently signed a strong letter of support that was published by the Dallas Morning News.
Thanks to all of the Texans who reached out to their legislators, wrote letters and showed up in Austin to testify in person, none of these were adopted by the House Committee.
