More choices for better transportation

Florida vies for federal HSR funds (yeah, right)

The Sun-Sentinel has an editorial that ties it up in a neat little bundle. Florida has failed to properly provide for its only commuter system and utterly derailed any attempt to start an HSR system.

Bruce Richardson (with whom we sometimes disagree) has an epic retelling of the political fiasco which is Florida politics as expressed in transportation policy. It is a sorry state of affairs.
