Opinion: Anti-toll legislation threatens Florida economy

With strong support from the business community, the Florida Legislature this year approved three new north-south toll roads, totaling over 300 miles. The toll roads, called Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES), would relieve congestion on I-75, permit economic development to accommodate forecast population growth, and add new hurricane evacuation routes. But anti-toll actions by the Legislature threaten Florida’s toll roads and economy.
