Campbell Backs Highway Cash Question

By Bill O'Neil

Add State Senator Donna Campbell to the list of backers of a November ballot initiative looking to divert money away from the State's "Rainy Day Fund" in favor of highway projects. 

In fact, both Campbell and Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff are already pushing for some of that cash--should the question get a thumbs up from voters--to be used to construct non-toll expressway lanes along U.S. Highway 281 between Stone Oak and the Bexar-Comal line. 

"The way I see it--this is both Republican and Democrat asphalt" Campbell told 550 KTSA's Jack Riccardi, adding this plan may be the best answer to an expansion--that currently only includes tolled lanes along that section of the highway.  

"They can keep the tolls they want, but I want free lanes added" Campbell said.
