Florida: What’s next for the Heartland if Governor Ron DeSantis repeals plans for a tolled parkway?

But legislation awaiting Gov. Ron DeSantis‘s signature nixes the plan entirely, calling instead for any road investment in the rural area to support existing infrastructure. It’s bittersweet for those representing the region, some of whom reluctantly support the repeal at a time when gas taxes are on the decline, and feasibility studies show a troubling fiscal path for the project. At a time when lawmakers want to boast at home about securing local spending, many now have to explain why this major plan will soon be off the books.
