Bills honoring Jimmy Buffett advance in Senate

by The 100 Companies

Two pieces of legislation honoring the late Florida troubadour Jimmy Buffett took a “lovely cruise” forward last week when a Senate committee advanced them with uniform support.

The first, by Davie Democratic Sen. Lauren Book, would designate State Road A1A from Key West – his longtime home – to the state line as “Jimmy Buffet Memorial Highway.” The bill would also allocate $23,400 to install markers on the thoroughfare.

The second measure by Stuart Republican Sen. Gayle Harrell would create a “Margaritaville” license plate. Proceeds from the specialty plate’s sales would go to Singing for Change, a charitable foundation Buffett founded in 1995.
