Those of you in Austin may want to take note of a rally being planned for Tuesday, May 3, to protest against the Trans-Texas Corridor. From my Inbox:

County Judges Ed Janecka and Evan Gonzales will represent the concerns of twenty counties that have adopted formal Resolutions opposing the Trans-Texas Corridor.
A growing number of voters share very serious concerns about the Trans-Texas Corridor and the horrific impact it will have on our state. We have members in 149 counties and we are urging all of them to rally in Austin on Tuesday. We sincerely hope the legislature will listen to the people of Texas, delay the Trans-Texas Corridor project, and provide the opportunity for real public input and discussion.
We urge support of House Bill 3363, a bill that will place a two year moratorium on the Trans-Texas Corridor and free road to toll conversions; and, House Bill 1273 and House Bill 1794, which modify the scope and scale of the Trans-Texas Corridor.
