Former Orange County, Florida mayoral candidate, transportation activist and founder of the American Statesman Organization, Sally Baptiste returns as our guest to discuss the recent legislation passed to add more toll roads to the state of Florida. 

Known for being less about  "talk" and more about "action", Sally believes this to be the highest tax and cost of living increase in Florida's history and is leading the way for filing a lawsuit against the State in order to block the action that she describes as being "grossly against the best interest of the people of Florida" as well as adding further financial strain on driver owner operators and the state trucking industry.

We will discuss her options to the Florida Transportation Commission to improve Florida transportation without excessive taxation, her lawsuit against the State of Florida, what she means by "Sustainable Development." and more on her comment, "If enough Florida truckers get on board, we can make a major statement nationwide."

Sally Baptiste is also host of the internet talk radio program, American Statesman.
