Special session set for Thursdayby Dara Kam | November 30th, 2009
The third time may be the charm for the controversial Central Florida commuter rail project called SunRail.
A special session dealing with SunRail and South Florida’s ailing Tri-Rail system will begin Thursday at 9 a.m.
House Speaker Larry Cretul issued a memo this afternoon saying he plans for the House to vote on the bill on Monday and for the Senate to vote on it on Wednesday.
Cretul, R-Ocala, said he and Atwater have agreed in principal on the proposal, which apparently exists but has not yet been distributed to most lawmakers, if any.
Money for Tri-Rail will come from the state road project fund and money for Sunrail and other rail projects will come from doc stamps from home sales.
