Texas employers continue to grow and add jobs. Out-of-state companies are expanding in Texas. The shale gas boom is creating new opportunities for Texas families. For the 12th year in a row, Texas is the top exporting state in the nation.
Economic growth is good for our families and communities. But growth also strains our roads and other critical infrastructure as more than 1,000 people move to Texas each day. Without the proper investment, gridlock and roadway safety will worsen and our economy and quality of life will suffer.
Move Texas Forward is committed to improving Texas infrastructure and keeping our roads capable of supporting our prosperous state.
Texas is Growing Fast
Texas transportation networks aren’t keeping up with our fast-growing population. Texas needs more than $5 billion in transportation funding just to keep pace with our state’s growth.

Thank You For Supporting Proposition 1
Texans overwhelmingly passed a proposed constitutional amendment that will provide billions more in reliable transportation funding. In the first year alone, Texas will invest $1.7 billion in our state’s infrastructure – without new taxes, fees or debt. This was a great first step and we must continue to find ways to invest in our transportation networks.
