Dockery wants to 'clean house' at FDOT



Sen. Paula Dockery, amid her SunRail tirade during a noon press conference with the group "Ax the Tax,"  dropped this campaign promise: That if elected Governor, one of the first things she would do is "clean house" at the Florida Department of Transportation. The FDOT stands to gain a lot more power under the legislation, which creates a rail commission under the FDOT umbrella.

Dockery said good people work there but "the leadership is completely out of control."
