  • Florida it’s Illegal to Power Your Home with Solar Panels—Thanks to Lobbying

The simple answer is that one of the major electrical suppliers in the state – Florida Power and Light (FPL) – has utilized a massive lobbying campaign, directed at state lawmakers, to create legal barriers to disallow people from powering their own homes with solar panels without being subject to power companies.

They each represent many other projects awaiting approval and funding in cities and towns across America. Texas Bullet Train Cost: $10 billion A bullet train in Texas would help ease traffic in Houston and Dallas that will only get worse as the Lonestar state continues to grow. A road trip from one city to the other will take up to 6.5 hours in the next twenty years. Modeled after Japan’s Shinkansen train, the Texas Central High-Speed Rail will cut that journey to just over three hours thanks to max speeds of 250 miles per hour. South Carolina Dams Cost: $700 million Heavy rains in 2015 breached more than 50 dams in South Carolina, causing flooding throughout the state. It’s an emergency that will keep happening if the more than 600 dams rated as high-hazard aren’t modernized. Dams are aging nationwide and need more than $20 billion in repairs and upgrades. Maryland Purple Line Cost: $5.6 billion The Washington DC area has some of the worst traffic in the country. Extending the existing metro system to the suburbs by adding another metro line with 21 new stations will make everyone’s commute shorter, and will take an estimated 17,000 cars off the road. Denver I-70 East Cost: $1.7 billion Denver has an ambitious plan to take back land from the interstate by plunging part of the I-70 East underground to create a large park with sports fields and performance spaces. The project will also modernize and widen the 60-plus-year-old road to ensure its structural integrity and ease congestion within the sprawling Denver area. Miami Sea Wall Cost: $20 billion Miami is already dealing with the effects of climate change with the installation of 80 pumping stations. But when sea levels rise just 5 more feet, 96% of the city will be underwater, making it America’s most vulnerable urban area to a changing climate. To survive, it will need to significantly expand its levee system and build a multi-billion dollar seawall. Northeast Corridor Maglev Cost: $100 billion The highly populated northeast corridor of the U.S. desperately needs to expand its high-speed rail network to keep pace with the best cities in the world. Right now, the fastest train is the Acela, whose top speed is just 125 miles per hour. A maglev train connecting New York to DC could hit 300 mph and cut the commute from four hours to one. Project Clean Lake Cost: $3 billion Old sewer lines aren’t properly functioning, resulting in raw sewage streaming into Lake Erie from Cleveland during storms. Project clean lake is a 25-year renewal plan that uses a variety of green methods, including the construction of seven tunnels, to solve the problem. The Gordie Howe International Bridge Cost: $2.1 billion To allow for more people and goods to pass through the Detroit-Windsor, Canada section of the border, the Gordie Howe International Bridge will provide uninterrupted traffic flow. When complete, the project will increase daily vehicle crossings by 30%. California High-Speed Rail Cost: $65 billion Phase 1 of California’s high-speed rail project should open by 2030. It aims to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco in just three hours, compared to the nearly six hours it now takes to drive the route. It will be the first high-speed rail project on the U.S. west coast and will eventually extend to San Diego and Sacramento, the state’s capitol. Hudson River Rail Tunnel Cost: $100 billion 200,000 daily passenger trips are made through the only rail tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. 100 years old and severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, it badly needs an upgrade. The proposed Hudson River Rail Tunnel megaproject would modernize the existing tunnel and add a second one in order to ease congestion and wait time for commuters.

(SOT-Dave Howard) “This is going to be a revolutionary train travel experience in our country. You’ve never seen trains like this. You’ve never seen stations like this, and our guests will experience a level of hospitality and care that they have not yet experienced in our country.” In addition to improving rail service in the area, the Brightline is expected to remove an estimated 3-million cars on the region’s choked roadways and have a direct impact on the state’s economy of 6.4 billion dollars over the next 8-years. (SOTDave Howard) “Those communities have embraced us because they have realized that we are going to be this change agent for the better for their communities, for their economy for their people to help them connect with the places and the people that they want to connect with and we’re, again, an important part of solving a mobility problem in this region.” This investment also spreads across the country, with 40-suppliers in 20-states providing all of parts for these 100-percent American Made trains. It’s estimated 10-thousand jobs will be created during Brightline’s construction phase. (SOT-Dave Howard) “I would encourage our nation’s lawmakers and policy makers to get familiar with our project and just to see what we have done. We have rebuilt a substantial part of the infrastructure. We’ve made a major private investment in a public service in terms of public transportation improvement and it can be and should be a model as they go to address this problem across our country.”

There's always a required local share, so anywhere from 10 to 20% of a project could be funded by a local port district or a local government that manages the port. For airports, it's basically the same, except the funding comes through the FAA, and then the local share will be picked up by the local government or the local airport district that deals with that project.

Railroad infrastructure is the backbone of a safe and successful train service! The team has been busy building and upgrading from Miami to West Palm Beach! Archer Western has partnered with Brightline to upgrade the existing 66-mile rail corridor. Upgrades and improvements are happening at multiple crossings. A second track is being built to run alongside the existing tracks. This is called "double tracking." Site workers are driving piles to upgrade the rail infrastructure. Rail trains are delivering the rail for the new track. Each rail weighs up to 136 pounds per yard! Work along the tracks will continue for the coming months. Safety is a foremost priority.

Other than highways, what is the composition of Florida transportation infrastructure? | Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A. | http://www.llw-law.com/ | Jacksonville: (904) 353-6410 | Tallahassee: (850) 222-5702 | Tampa Bay: (941) 708-4040 | West Palm Beach: (561) 640-0820 We've got a rich mix in Florida. When you look at the state as it extends into the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, you can see we've got fourteen deep water ports that provide access in a way that not many other states can do. We've also got the burgeoning rail system in Florida. We've got Bright Line Rail now coming into Southeast Florida. We've got the SunRail Project in Orlando and there are plans on the books to connect these areas with rail. Florida also has something which is unique and it's a function of our history as a space port. We have two commercial space ports in Florida. One at Cecil Field in Jacksonville and then at the Cape, so we've got the ability to connect infrastructure providers if you will into space that not many other states have.

[247 Breaking News] Irma Will Test Florida’s Infrastructure, From Dikes to Sewage Plants Subscribe My Channel Because It's Free! Thank You For Your Watching, Your Like, Your Subscription! FORT MYERS, Fla.Engineers stopped releasing water from Lake Okeechobee on Saturday, confident that they had lowered levels enough to keep the dike and the towns around it safe as Hurricane Irma swept into southern Florida.But the dike, built seven decades ago and named for Herbert Hoover, was not the only major piece of Florida infrastructure that had officials concerned as the hurricane approached. Airports, sewage treatment plants, flood control systems and other facilities could be overrun by heavy rains or flooding from storm surge, as Irma’s winds amass ocean water and push it ashore.The impacts of climate change — especially sea level rise, which is already bringing more tidal flooding in Miami Beach — could make matters worse, as any storm surge from Irma would be on top of an already higher baseline.And Florida, like every state in an era of tightening budgets, has deferred costly maintenance on much of its infrastructure, said Addie Javed, a former president of the Florida section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.“Deferred maintenance is the biggest problem; later or sooner you’re going to be paying for that,” he said. “You want to make sure that your infrastructure is in top shape when a disaster like this happens.”As South Florida’s population has swelled in recent decades, its roads, water and sewage treatment plants and other facilities have struggled to keep pace. Much of the state’s infrastructure is now nearing the end of its useful life, so maintenance is even more important, Mr. Javed said.In its latest annual report, which Mr. Javed helped prepare, the engineering society gave the state an overall grade of C for its infrastructure, better than the national grade of D-plus. Some elements, including airports, ports and bridges, earned high marks.But others, including water and sewage treatment plants, were poorly rated. The federal Environmental Protection Agency estimated last year that $17 billion would be needed over the next two decades just to maintain Florida’s existing drinking water systems.Waterworks and sewage treatment plants can be especially vulnerable to freshwater flooding or storm surge, as they are often sited on or close to rivers or the ocean. Hurricane Harvey was a reminder of that vulnerability: Beaumont, Tex., had no drinking water for several days after its plant was knocked out of service by flooding along the adjacent Neches River, the source of the city’s water.Mr. Javed said most of Florida’s water comes from wells, so flooding should not be a concern. Sewage treatment plants are another story, however. While many have special valves designed to prevent too much storm water from entering the system, they can be overwhelmed in severe storms, and untreated sewage can end up in waterways.As for roads, of special concern is the Overseas Highway, 115 miles of causeways and bridges between Miami -------------------------------------------------- Source: Subscribe & More Videos: https://goo.gl/MAfreB Thank for watching, Please Like Share And SUBSCRIBE!!! #donaldtrump, #foxbreakingnews
