The Florida Transportation Commission was created in 1987, under Section 20.23, Florida Statutes, to serve as a citizen’s oversight board for the Florida Department of Transportation. The Commission is assigned to the Department for administrative and fiscal purposes; otherwise, it functions independently of the control and direction of the Department. Composed of nine Commissioners appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate for four-year terms, the Commission is required to meet at least four times per year. The Commission usually meets around seven times per year, in locations throughout the state in order to receive local input.
