It goes by a few different names like TTC, Trans-Texas Corridor and the North America Corridor, which just spells out NAU, North American Union. Looks like Texas is rolling over, just like it does on everything else, so I hope Oklahoma can cut it off.

The whole "idea" was spawned (for the most part) from these two items:

SPP Myths vs Facts (http://www.spp.gov/myths_vs_facts.asp - broken link)

North America's SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc. (http://www.nascocorridor.com/commondetail.asp?id=2190 - broken link)

Sorry LR. this is out dated. Too many of the "so-called" facts on the above links have already been overwritten.

I'm still an Advocate with ALIPAC. I not only fight Illegal Immigration, but I'm an advocate against NAFTA aka NAU, because they're connected.

OMG, I really hope OK will oppose this. Back home in Texas, our gov has continued to shove the NAFTA superhighway otherwise known as the Trans Texas Corridor heavily. Its going to be a mile wide $50 billion boondoogle. I'm all for progress but I am very against this because its literally going to rip the heart out of several communities along I-35 and not to mention it will destroy more farmland and encourage useless urban sprawl. Not to mention it will be a lovely corridor for illegal aliens and shipments to zoom right into the US (and trust me it will given Texas's hands-off policy towards immigration). Just great !

You can read all about this gem. Trans-Texas Corridor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It will concern Oklahoma since it will dump right into OK on the Red River boundary.

Not if one Oklahoma state senator has his way (and I hope he does):

'NAFTA Superhighway stops here,' says Okla. senator

Ane if anyone know how we can oppose it please email us. I oppose this. Just what we need. Mexico truckers delivery our goods and put our truckers out of business I guess. What gives with both parties in our government. They are all in favor of this nafta stuff which as one can tell hasn't been too good for us. I did hear Texas was infavor of nafta. Why!!!!!!!
