Senator Rodney Ellis Statement on Safe Clear

(Austin)// -- Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) today released the following statement regarding the City of Houston's Safe Clear towing proposal:

"The mayor and city council are working hard to address this issue, so it seems a little premature to me for the legislature to be beating them over the head when they are taking action to address many of the stated concerns.

"I will continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to working with Mayor White, the city council and the entire Houston-area delegation to come to an agreement on this important issue. We all want the same thing: safe highways and safe Houston drivers."
