DALLAS - State lawmakers yesterday chastised the Texas Department of Transportation for blaming the Legislature for its funding crisis instead of admitting its own failures in planning.
"I think we have an agency in turmoil. We have an agency in chaos," said Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo. "It is highly irresponsible to blame the Legislature for poor planning. This is at best intellectually dishonest, and I, for one, do not appreciate it."
