TEXANS AGAINST HIGH-SPEED RAIL TO HOST PRESS CONFERENCE FOLLOWING GRIMES COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT DECISION
WHAT: Texans Against High-Speed Rail (TAHSR) will host a press conference immediately following tomorrow’s Grimes County Commissioners Court to announce the outcome and impact of proposed regulation on high-speed rail.
WHO: Grimes County Judge Ben Leman, TAHSR President Kyle Workman. (Updates will be posted to TAHSR social media accounts.)
WHEN: TUESDAY, AUGUST 9, 2016; 1:00 PM
WHERE: GRIMES COUNTY COURTHOUSE STEPS, 100 Main Street Anderson, Texas 77830
WHY: Grimes County Commissioners will review, consider and vote on regulation for high-speed rail that will likely have a major impact on the high-speed rail project currently proposed to pass through Grimes County. The proposed regulation is not only precedent-setting but could be the beginning of a ripple effect that will place the Dallas Houston HSR in serious jeopardy.
