AUSTIN - Governor Rick Perry Monday issued the following statement regarding the final passage of HB1 and SJR1 by the Texas Legislature:

"Today's action by the Texas Legislature moves our state closer to securing a strong economy well into the future by providing more resources for building and maintaining a transportation system that will keep our economy growing and our population moving. Just as important is the fact that we are increasing funding for transportation without raising taxes, which sends an incredibly strong message that Texas is committed to keeping the wheels of commerce turning, while protecting taxpayers."
