Bill to Lower MDX Tolls and Require Agency to Surrender Parts of “Vast Cash Coffers” for Rail and Bus Projects Awaits FL Governor’s Signature

Miami Herald reports, “Tolls on Miami-Dade expressways could drop 5 percent under legislation [CS/HB 1049] awaiting Gov. Rick Scott’s signature, and that might mean the end of yearly rebate checks for the county’s biggest toll payers. The law . . . drew praise from anti-toll activists, since it mandates lower toll rates on five expressways and requires [MDX] to surrender parts of it vast cash coffers for use on rail and bus projects.”
