Proposition 1 Stakeholder Committee

In November 2014, Texans voted on Proposition 1, an amendment to the Texas Constitution that transfers money from the state’s Rainy Day Fund to the State Highway Fund. The ballot proposition read:

"The constitutional amendment providing for the use and dedication of certain money transferred to the state highway fund to assist in the completion of transportation construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation projects, not to include toll roads."

In August 2014, a working committee representing stakeholder interests statewide was formed to assist TxDOT on how to best distribute funding from Proposition 1. The group made recommendations amongst the following:

  • Addressing congestion in urban areas
  • Providing additional connectivity for rural areas
  • Maintaining the state’s existing road infrastructure
  • Addressing additional needs due to increased oil and gas production
