_________________
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) began in 1917 as the State Highway Department. Since that time, the Department has evolved from its original responsibilities of granting financial aid and directing county road construction programs, to a much broader mission of delivering a 21st century transportation system to address the state’s growing transportation needs, most recently through limited authority to use new financing options for road projects. To fulfill its mission of providing safe, efficient, and effective means for the movement of people and goods throughout the state, TxDOT:

• plans, constructs, maintains, and supports the State’s transportation system;

• develops and operates a system of toll roads using public and private-sector partners and fi nancing options;

• manages operations on the state highway system, including improving traffic safety, issuing oversize/overweight permits, and registering motor carriers;

• regulates the motor vehicle industry in Texas, including licensing and investigating complaints against dealers, lessors, lease facilitators, manufacturers, distributors, and converters; and

• registers motor vehicles, issuing certificates of title and license plates.

* Subject to the Texas Sunset Act; will be reviewed in 2017.
