Texas 3rd District:

Nichols is a 71 year old Texan who authors nearly every anti-taxpayer, pro-toll bill of the session, including the sale of Texas roads to private, foreign toll operators. He gutted our good bills to ensure free roads could be converted to toll roads and that freeway lanes could be tolled leaving frontage roads as the only non-toll option (and removed the public vote), and authored the bill to use both property tax and sales tax to build/subsidize toll roads, transit and rail projects without a public vote.
