Palm Beach Post, Friday, Nov. 13, 19685 7:30 PM DEATH VALLEY TUC 7i A Proposed Legislation Prepared To Reduce Death Toll On SR 80 k ;;ovild WILD is' ,h . L WEST I r v j l i .- v i- r By REX NEWMAN Tallahassee Bureau TALLAHASSEE ( AKN ) Two Palm Beach County area state representatives are preparing measures for the 19 legislature aimed at helping to solve the State Road SO Rep. Jack Poorbaugh, R-Boynton Beach, is preparing a measure that would automatically lift for a period of 30 days the driver's license of any person convicted of driving more than 25 miles an hour above the speed limit. FRIDAY WIGHT ON 7:00 PM fic count on a road, without consideration of the hazardous condition of the road. This formula has prevented the state from releasing state and federal funds to four-lane SR 80 because its traffic count does not come up to standards. The county's share of secondary road funds is not sufficient to undertake the expensive four-laning project. James said Rep. Ralph Turlington, D-Ciainesville. past speaker and presently chairman of the Appropriations Committee, indicated during the 18 constitutional revision session he could back James' proposal if it were in statutory language. James tried to get the hazardous provision written into the new constitution, but too much opposition for placing it in the constitution killed it. However, as a statute it will receive much wider support, James said. Poorbaugh, who tried a similar measure during his first term in the House in 17, said such a measure had proved effective in Connecticut in reducing traffic fatalities. "Speed is the biggest killer on Florida Highways and this is designed to cut down on that number one killer," he said. Tackling the SR 80 problem from another angle is Rep. William James, R-Delray Beach, who announced Thursday that he is preparing a measure to alter the formula for qualifying state roads for federal participating funds in Florida. James would add to the formula a criterion which would allow the hazardous nature of a road to be taken into account as well as traffic count when consideration for state and federal funds are made. Presently the rigid formula allows the Florida Road Department to consider only traf ik it 1c Poorbaugh, James Assigned Key Posts ana, .. . - .

"We can't put our heads in the sand. We must reevaluate our school system and make adjustments which are necessary," Friday said. Friday also emphasized the need to reorganize stale agencies under 25 operating heads, probably in a special session of I he legislature, expected to be called in January. The senator, chairman ot the Senate Rules Committee, said "compaction at the top level" would minimize "buck-passing," and explained that the reorganization is in line wilh provisions in the new state Constitution providing for the streamlining of slate agencies.
