T.R.U.S.T. IS AN ACRONYM FOR
USED STRICTLY FOR TRANSPORTATION
We formed in 2005 as a project of Oklahomans for Safe Bridges & Roads, Inc., the non-profit organization that led the campaign to pass SQ 723. SQ 723 was a ballot initiative to raise the state gasoline and diesel tax with new revenue dedicated toward transportation infrastructure construction, repair and maintenance across Oklahoma. The measure was soundly defeated by voters amid rising fuel costs at the time.
Following the defeat of SQ 723, it became evident an advocacy organization dedicated solely to restoring transportation funding as a core priority of state government was needed. TRUST began its advocacy efforts during the 2006 state legislative session.
