Amy Zubaly, Executive Director, Florida Municipal Electric Association
Regarding Passage of Lineworker Specialty License Plate Legislation
“We commend the Florida Legislature for today passing legislation that will establish the ‘Thank a Lineman’ specialty license plate, which will generate proceeds used to fund scholarships to train the next generation of skilled lineworkers.
Thousands of electric lineworkers power the Sunshine State 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The hurricanes that have impacted our state these past few years have highlighted the tremendous effort and sacrifices lineworkers make each and every day to keep the lights on in their communities, no matter how dangerous the conditions.
By establishing this new specialty plate honoring their service, we not only give Florida’s lineworkers the recognition they so richly deserve, we also inspire and support a new generation of community heroes who will go on to power our great state.”
