AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — As the litigation continues in Potter County surrounding the use of anticipation notes for the Amarillo Civic Center Complex expansion and renovation project, Amarillo Businessman Alex Fairly has taken his message to Austin, recently testifying in front of both the Texas House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee along with the Texas Senate Committee on Local Government.  During the respective testimonies, Fairly laid out the case that his lawsuit brings forward to state lawmakers, none of which represent Texas Panhandle residents, questioning whether or not the city of Amarillo followed the law when they issued $260 million in anticipation notes for the city's Civic Center Complex project, an amount which officials claim is the largest set of anticipation notes in the state's history.
