Letter to the editor
Despite budget difficulties, the Legislative session 2008 was not all bad news.
All of us know how important mobility is in today’s fast-paced society. Thanks to the leadership of state Sen. Mike Fasano, Floridians who are transportation disadvantaged can rest easy. HB1175/SB788 passed unanimously. This bill specifically strengthens the Commission for Transportation Disadvantaged. It will allow the commission to better execute its mission in providing cost-effective, safe and reliable transportation for our fellow Floridians who are transportation disadvantaged.
As the chairman of the commission, I wish to thank Sen. Fasano for his leadership and services to Floridians who are transportation disadvantaged.
J.R. Harding, chairman, Tallahassee
