WHO WE ARE
TEX-21 is a 20+ year old collective, grassroots effort to improve the transportation infrastructure in the States of Texas and Oklahoma. With its growing membership of cities, counties, ports and other entities, TEX-21 creates strategies to increase investment in transportation infrastructure, improve the planning and management of our transportation facilities, and increase public awareness of the importance of multi-modal transportation that is required for efficient economic development and sustainability.
One of TEX-21's biggest strengths has been development and maintenance of Congressional and Legislative Transportation caucuses. During times of political transitions, the "voice" of TEX-21 will provide stabilizing efforts for multi-modal transportation policy. Our cooperative approach has consistently gained praise from policymakers at each level of government as we collaborate for effective transportation policy and tackle the challenges.
Opportunities to create productive relationships with like-minded transportation advocates from across the States of Texas and Oklahoma.
High-level access to transportation decision makers at the Federal and State levels through TEX-21's strong Legislative Caucuses, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Texas Transportation Commission, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, and the USDOT.
Opportunities to raise awareness of transportation needs in your region and collaborate with representatives from the State and Federal legislative and executive branches.
Focused attention on key transportation corridors in Texas and Oklahoma through Corridor Task Forces including IH-30, US 75/ IH-45, US 287, IH-35 and also a key initiative, the Third Coast Initiative which focuses on opportunities created by the expanded Panama Canal.
Up-to-date information and analysis of key transportation policy issues, TEX-21 is currently focused on the highway funding crisis, with passage of the Federal surface re-authorization bill, and the State's proposals to increase funding. Through TEX-21 research, a new funding proposal called the Expiring revenue Enhancement (ERE) is being proposed, based on future growth of state sales tax dollars for a limited time.
