Debate Over Trans Texas Corridor Plan

Opposition is growing to Governor Rick Perry's proposal for a 4,000-mile network of quarter-mile-wide multimodal corridors for transporting goods, people and utilities.

The projected cost, at least $183 billion, is more than the original price tag for the entire U.S. interstate system. Some think the proposal is visionary while others see it as putting too much power into the hands of private interests as well as an environmental disaster.
