BREAKING NEWS: LEGISLATURE SAYS KEY WEST CAN’T LIMIT CRUISE SHIPS

Key West’s effort to ban large cruise ships is on death row, the governor its only lifeline. A single signature by Gov. Ron DeSantis will bring a breathless end to Key West’s cruise ship debate today. If DeSantis approves the bill passed by the Florida House late Wednesday night, cruise ships of all sizes will continue coming to Key West. If DeSantis instead vetoes the bill, Key West’s Committee for Safer Cleaner Ships will prevail. But a veto is unlikely given the breadth of the transportation bill that contains the cruise ship legislation.  Just before 10 p.m. Wednesday, the Florida House...

Ana Maria Rodriguez, a Republican, voted against the bill that prohibits Key West from restricting the size, type and capacity of ships that visit its port. The bill still has to pass the Florida House of Representatives before becoming law, and the...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: CRUISE SHIP PROPONENT USED TO BE ‘ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS’

I won’t take up too much of your ink on the curious claims made by Ed Swift in his recent letter. He says he has no financial involvement in the draft legislation that would overturn the results of last year’s Key West election and force large cruise ships back into Key West. But this will come as a surprise to Kate DeLoach and the other lobbyists at the Southern Group, the high-priced firm that represents both Historic Tours of America and Mark Walsh’s Pier B Development Corporation in their effort to punish their neighbors for voting against large cruise ships and continue to exploit our shared...
