    Florida Senate - 2004                                 SJR 1502

    By Senator Klein





    30-873-04                                            See HJR 3

  1                 Senate Joint Resolution No. ____

  2         A joint resolution proposing the repeal of

  3         Section 19 of Article X of the State

  4         Constitution, which section requires the

  5         development and operation of a high-speed

  6         ground transportation system.

  7  

  8         WHEREAS, in adding Section 19 to Article X of the State

  9  Constitution, the electors demonstrated their concerns with

10  traffic congestion and their intent that this state adopt the

11  goal of reducing congestion, and

12         WHEREAS, traffic delays are of concern statewide, but

13  actual transportation problems are local in scope, and

14         WHEREAS, the Legislature recognizes that reducing time

15  spent on the road is a critical element in improving the

16  quality of life for Floridians and visitors alike, and

17         WHEREAS, the Legislature further recognizes that

18  solutions to individual problems are best addressed at the

19  local level and with the goal of attaining long-term

20  solutions, and

21         WHEREAS, the Legislature has determined that these

22  solutions, as well as their funding, more appropriately should

23  be addressed by local jurisdictions and leaders without

24  burdening the state with responsibility for the extensive

25  costs of a high-speed ground transportation system that fails

26  to adequately address Florida's real transportation needs,

27  NOW, THEREFORE,

28  

29  Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
