The capital area’s transportation planning authority, known as CAMPO, is made up of representatives from Austin and five counties of Central Texas. Now CAMPO is considering bringing on a seventh member, Burnet County.

But with a cacophony of voices speaking for CAMPO, no decision is straightforward.
