Governor announces funding at JAXPORT

January 14 - Florida Governor, Rick Scott has visited Jacksonville Port Authority's (JAXPORT) Blount Island Marine Terminal to announce plans for a historic USD8.8 billion of funding for transportation improvements.

Scott joined Jacksonville mayor, Alvin Brown, Florida's Department of Transportation secretary, Ananth Prasand and JAXPORT's ceo, Brian Taylor, alongside board members, John Allen Newman and James Citrano at the terminal to pledge the historic level of funding.

The USD8.8 billion Department of Transportation budget will include nearly USD139 million for improvements to Florida's seaports.
