NTTA revises toll collection process

AUSTIN — During the 82nd Texas Legislature, I supported Senate Bill 469, authored by Sen. Jane Nelson, to revise the North Texas Tollway Authority's (NTTA) toll collection process. SB 469 aims to clarify the toll collection process and address concerns regarding exuberant administrative fees on toll violations.

The bill benefits customers who pay to use the NTTA System by assessing the cost of the NTTA's toll enforcement efforts onto the small minority who refuse to pay. The bill includes the following five provisions for the NTTA's toll collection process:

This revised toll collection process will go into effect September 1, and make the system simpler and more fair to North Texans. If you have any questions about the new payment procedure, please don't hesitate to contact my office using the information below or call the NTTA at 972-818-6882.

To contact Sen. Deuell about the legislative process or if you have a suggestion for a future Capitol Update, please contact the Capitol office at (512) 463-0102 or send mail to Sen. Bob Deuell, Texas Senate, P.O. Box 12068, Austin, TX 78711. The website for the Texas Senate is www.senate.state.tx.us and Sen. Deuell's e-mail address is: bob.deuell@senate.state.tx.us.
