M-CORES also known as the toll-roads-to-nowhere project passed as SB-7068. We are encouraging all to urge Florida legislators to repeal M-CORES. Cutting M-CORES funding will save the state more than $100 million this year alone, and up to $26.4 billion in the long-term.

We, the citizens of the State of Florida, are asking the Florida Members of of the State House and Senate to REPEAL M-CORES also known as the TOLL-ROADS-TO-NOWHERE PROJECT. We support this repeal by way of Senate bill 1030 and Florida House bill 763.

Cutting M-CORES funding will save the state more than $100 million this year alone, and up to $26.4 billion in the long-term. These are funds that can be re-allocated for our communities. This is not the time to be funding toll-roads-to-nowhere.

Instead we ask that our leaders are bold and address the major issues facing Florida: COVID relief, unemployment, health care, worker rights, education, environment, retirement security, housing, and justice and equality for all.
