Tallahassee, FL (AP) - A measure that would end the SunPass
toll discount has cleared the Senate Budget committee.
The committee voted for the proposal on Thursday. SunPass is an
electronic toll-paying system and users typically pay 25 cents less
than drivers who pay cash on Florida's Turnpike and other state
A fiscal impact statement didn't say how much money the state
will recoup from ending the discount if it's ultimately approved.
The measure was included in a bill that allows the state's
Turnpike Enterprise to absorb three authorities: the Orlando-Orange
County Expressway Authority, the Tampa-Hillsborough County
Expressway Authority and the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority in Okaloosa
The committee continues working on the Senate's version of the
budget on Friday.
