Help Us Change the Paradigm
Change can happen both at the grassroots level, and from the top down by working with key decision makers across the state to adopt safer policies and priorities. As the Board of Directors for TxDOT for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) the Texas Transportation Commission meets throughout the year to consider policies, projects and funding needs. The Texas Legislature on meets in session once every other year during the spring to consider legislative polices and to set the State’s budget. During the off year House and Senate Committees meet to study and consider Interim Charges that often determine major policy needs.
Vison Zero Texas (as a project of Farm&City) is hard at work educating key decision makers across the state, and participating in the Interim Charge process – and you can join in too:
