TTC moratorium is veto-proof

According to Corridor Watch, there are now veto-proof majorities in both chambers for the toll road moratorium bill. It still has to make it through committee, which will present some interesting options for toll-loving Chair Mike Krusee, and it needs to be passed quickly so there's time for a legislative override of Governor Perry's expected veto, but the picture is clear: The Lege wants to put the brakes on. Will the will of the super-majority be followed or thwarted? Stay tuned and find out. Thanks to Eye on Williamson, who has followed this all very closely, for the heads up.
