Relating to toll collection and enforcement by private participants
in comprehensive development agreements with the Texas Department
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 2578 would exempt certain restrictions on toll collection by a private participant or subcontractor under a comprehensive development agreement entered into before September 1, 2017.
This would effectively exempt the SH 288 toll road project in Harris County from tolling fee limitations that were imposed by the 84th Legislature.
Texas Action opposes HB 2578 for violating the principle of limited government. Exemptions should not be made from important protections that help prevent motorists from being overcharged for tolls and fees.
