Day 21 (And Counting) of SunPass' 6-Day Update


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • What was supposed to be a 6 day update for SunPass systems has now extended to 21 days- and there's no update on when SunPass sites will be back up and running.
  • There is now over $100 million in toll transactions that are unprocessed, but drivers will eventually be held accountable for those tolls.
  • In 2011 the Federal Government offered to fund a high speed rail for Tampa, but the plan was shot down because officials feared tax-payers would be held accountable for any excess funding. 
  • Michael Kelly is the new Athletic Director for USF. One big task he will have to tackle will be securing funds from donors to better balance the athletic department budget. 
  • One big reason felons continue to commit crimes after their release is is the lack of addiction treatment programs prisons offer. When an addict is released, they are still dependent on substances, and will likely commit another drug-centered or related crime. 
  • Private-prison companies benefit from the rearrest of felons, as do campaigns and politicians with ties to those prisons.
