Florida State House Representative Bryan Avila and Florida Senator Manny Diaz, Jr. file legislation that would repeal the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority.
According to a post made by representative Bryan Avila on Twitter, “The bill repeals the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX), reforms the use of the Charter County and Regional Transportation Surtax, reorganizes the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) and requires that all toll revenues collected in Miami-Dade County remain in the county.”
The post also quoted Avila as saying, “The need to improve public transportation in Miami-Dade County could not be any more evident. Our quality of life and economic potential depend on the ability to produce transportation solutions that will prepare us for the future.”
Senator Manny Diaz, Jr. was quoted, “For far too long we have talked about solving tolls and traffic issues in our community, we have heard from constituents and we are taking bold action now.”
Proud to join @SenMannyDiazJr in sponsoring House Bill 385, which repeals @MDXway, reforms the 1/2 penny transportation surtax, reorganizes the @miamidadetpo , and requires all toll revenue collected in @MiamiDadeCounty remain in the county. #FightingforFLFamilies pic.twitter.com/PCIZRaPwWL
