Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

This legislation would require Financial studies and reports associated with a toll project, including financial forecasts and traffic and revenue reports, are subject to disclosure, inspection, and copying under Chapter 552, Government Code, and would repeal Chapter 371,052(d), Transportation Code.

Vote Recommendation Notes

We support greater transparency in regard to toll road projects, which helps the public and state agencies alike to keep an eye on toll projects and the general trend of building toll roads. We support HB 2620 under our limited government principle.
