Toll Opponents Celebrate Primary Results

By Bill O'Neil

Toll road opponents in Texas see a lot to like int he results of Tuesday's primaries around the Lone Star State. 

"Toll roads are coming--without a doubt--to San Antonio if we do not stand up, and force this to a public vote" said Terri Hall with Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom, who is pleased with what voters said at the ballot box. That includes the defeat of incumbent State Senator John Carona, and State Rep Linda Harper-Brown--who have both been toll road supporters in the past. 

However, the statement in the San Antonio area was much more muted. 

"I think part of the reason Bexar County is kind of asleep at the switrch when it comes to the toll issue is because many people just don't realize it is coming" Hall told 550 KTSA News, pointing to her group's " petition drive--which aims to force a public vote.
