Lt. Governor Patrick and Senator Nichols Announce Transportation Bill

AUSTIN – Today, Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, along with Senate Transportation Chair, Robert Nichols, announced the filing of SB 5 and SJR 5, which dedicates a portion of existing motor vehicle sales tax revenue to fund road construction and maintenance.

“I am proud that Senator Nichols is leading the charge in addressing our ailing transportation funding system,” said Patrick. “Dedicating these dollars and ending the diversion of existing gas tax revenue will dramatically improve our state roadways.

“Making additional revenue available will allow us to refocus on a pay-as-you-go system for our roadways and steer us away from debt and toll roads. This is an issue I advocated for during the campaign that received strong support from the voters. It’s a promise I’ve made and a promise I’ve kept,” concluded Patrick.

188 years ago, Texan forces, led by General Sam Houston, achieved a decisive victory over Mexican troops in the Battle of San Jacinto. This battle marked a pivotal moment in Texas history, securing our independence from Mexico. Join me this San Jacinto Day in remembering the bravery and sacrifices of those who fought for freedom. God bless Texas!
