FL Lawmakers Reject Bill to Stop New Tolled Express Lanes

SaintPetersBlog reports, “A bill seeking to end Florida’s practice of developing tolled express lanes was rejected Tuesday [March 28] by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee. Various members of the committee cited a number of reasons why they would not want to see Florida stop developing special lanes that could give higher-speed options through typically congested areas to high-occupancy cars or drivers willing to pay tolls for that privilege, and House Bill 777 went down.” [Link inserted.]
