I-27 Advisory Committee
Proposed Senate Bill 1474 requires the establishment of an Interstate 27 Advisory Committee. The purpose of the I-27 Advisory Committee is to provide TxDOT with information on concerns and interest along the Ports-to-Plains Corridor in Texas and to advise TxDOT on transportation improvements impacting the Corridor. Creation of an I-27 Advisory Committee was a policy recommendation from the Ports-to-Plains Corridor Advisory Committee as part of the Ports-to-Plains Corridor Interstate Feasibility Study completed in 2020.
SB 1474 requires the I-27 Advisory Committee meet at least twice each fiscal year (September through August). They may also meet at other times as requested by the committee chair or TxDOT. Meetings are permitted to be held remotely or by teleconference as determined by the Committee Chair. Committee meetings must be open to the public whether they are held in-person or remote. The first I-27 Advisory Committee meeting is required to be held on or before Oct. 31, 2021.
