What is the proposed Stop New Toll Roads Ballot Amendment in Florida?

The Florida Toll Road Expansion Ban Amendment, also known as Stop New Toll Roads, will prohibit the construction or expansion of toll roads on conservation and rural lands. Toll roads, the ballot language says, “decrease the quality of life for all Floridians.”

According to Chuck O’Neal, the chairman of the Florida Rights of Nature Network, toll roads divide wildlife corridors, destroy natural ecosystems, and, he explains, often place a burden on under-resourced families.
