SunPass discount would end under Senate plan

The Senate today approved a measure that would end the SunPass toll discount.

SunPass is an electronic toll-paying system and users typically pay 25 cents less than drivers who pay cash on Florida's Turnpike and other state toll roads.

The vote was 28 to 11.

The SunPass issue is included in a bill that allows the state's Turnpike Enterprise to absorb three authorities: the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority, the Tampa-Hillsborough County Expressway Authority and the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority in Okaloosa County.
