Statement from Commissioner Esteban Bovo on the passing of HB 385 and SB 898 in Tallahassee


“I applaud the leadership of the bill sponsors, House and Senate leadership, and the members of our local legislative delegation that voted in favor of this reform. HB 385 and SB 898 will replace MDX and usher in a new entity that will bring toll rate reduction, responsibly maintain local control, and restore the public’s trust & confidence. This new agency must be responsive to the commuters and residents of Miami-Dade County. I encourage Governor DeSantis to sign the bill into law so that our county can provide better transportation options, alleviate traffic congestion, and relief from excessive tolls. We all need to continue working together to improve mobility and transportation in our community.”
