Miami Senator Proposes Bill That Would Eliminate MDX
A state senator who represents parts of Miami has filed a bill that would eliminate county-run expressways, including MDX, the Miami-Dade County Expressway Authority.
Republican Sen. Frank Artiles (40th District) said in a press release that Senate Bill 308 would, quote, “cut down on bureaucratic government.”
If passed, the bill would transfer control of county expressways -- and their toll revenues -- from counties to the state of Florida.
Artiles said the change would cut costs for drivers.
