Statement by Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa

on Deirdre Delisi's resignation from the Texas Transportation Commission

"Today the Texas Department of Transportation is going through a positive transformation in great part due to the leadership and vision of Deirdre Delisi.

"Delisi has led the agency through three years of difficult reviews by the Sunset Commission and was instrumental this past session in the successful reauthorization of TxDOT and the funding increases approved for the construction of new roads and other infrastructure needed across the state.

"As vice-chair of the Senate Finance Committee and author of the TxDOT sunset bill (SB 1420), I want to thank her for her service to the State of Texas."
