Border Trade Advisory Committee
The Border Trade Advisory Committee provides a forum for the exchange of communications between the Texas Transportation Commission, TxDOT, the governor and committee members representing border trade interests.
The BTAC was created in 2001 by the 77th Texas Legislature to define and develop a strategy and make recommendations to the commission and the governor for addressing the highest priority border trade transportation challenges. The BTAC recommendations are included in border reports that are presented to the presiding officers of the State House and State Senate.
