Isett pulled TxDOT review for a reason

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -  A Lubbock lawmaker disputes a report that Democrats are upset with him.  State Representative Carl Isett was accused in at least two newspapers of quote/unquote "pulling a fast one" when he delayed a review of TxDOT in the legislative session.  Isett says lawmakers knew exactly what he was planning when he put off a review of both TxDOT and workers compensation.  

He says it was a simple matter.   Time was running out and there was no time to present the bill.   But Isett also says he feels very confident that Governor Rick Perry will call a special session to deal with TxDOT reforms.  The agency suffered what you might call a Billion-dollar accounting mistake in the past two years.
